6 NEW bikes from Honda USA for 2013

Check link here:
http://powersports.honda.com/
Just a few more days to find out...
CBR500 for sure.
I am guessing the CB1100, CB500X but that only makes 3.
So what else?...
A supermotard version of the CRF250L?
A new cruiser?
...

A motard would be sweet, although that segment has sort of died here in the states so I wonder if Honda would even bother. Isn't the CBR600RR due for a refresh? Maybe that's one of the new bikes. Oh and that XR650L has been unchanged for what seems like a decade. Maybe they're gonna intro a new dual sport 650, but you'd think we would have heard about it by now.

A new CBR 600RR would make sense. The ST1300 sure could use a lifting. The CBF 1000 and 600 are sold in Canada. May be one of them will cross the border?

But all in all, I'm just happy Honda will be offering more choices.

X2.

Every time I consider buying a new/used bike, I always seem to look for a comparable Honda model. I always hear the rumors of Honda reliability and build quality, not sure if they are true or on but many seem to think so.

Every time, however, Honda doesn't seem to offer what I want. It's always a 'close but not quite' kind of thing. In all reality my opinion doesn't matter, as I don't see me buying a new bike for a long time. Too many clean, low milage used bikes on Craigslist and well-farkled ready-to-ride bikes here, although normally with higher milage.

I can tell you as a Honda only tech that they don't break unless you abuse them severely. If something major does go wrong Honda is pretty quick to help out. I should have focus on another brand to work for so I made more money

1993 for the XR650L 2013 model year makes it 20 years unchanged.
