Laugh Honda /TDM

Obviously HONDA engineers thought they could do a better job than the YAMAHA'S TDM.

Up to 70mph there's not a lot between these bikes..
IIRC Honda says the X is faster to 60mph than the 76bhp CBF600.

That's not a bad idea..

The 800ST is about to get a redesign/update; there are spy shots floating around. I always liked the 800S better, but BMW discontinued it.

Nah, leave it. That other thread was all speculation from when it looked like they weren't coming to the US. I just thought I'd mention thread in case you were interested.


Anyway, I'm amazed they are selling base models for $7k. I figured it would carry the usual Honda premium and go for $10k.

Any idea when these may hit the show room so I can take a look at it? I'm looking to buy a new bike in the spring and this is a nice mix to the versys vs weestrom debate.

Honda's US website lists $8,999 for the DCT ABS model as well as quite a few accessories.

I want to hate it, but I'm finding that to be oddly difficult.
