Not sure if Honda will ever attempt to cater to us specifically, as they believe us to be a fickle group that demanded certain styles of bikes, that when made were left to gather dust on their showroom floors...[/QUOTE]
gee I wonder where they ever got that idea.
apparently they know us even better than we do.
There is a problem with constantly pushing the envelope performance wise (several, actually). Every time one of the Japanese manufacturers comes out with a "super" bike, a year later someone else comes out with one that is .03 seconds quicker in the 1/4 mile... Nobody ever wins.
These new Hondas are the most innovative products any Japanese company has produced in a long time. They are a breath of fresh air.
