Seems like an interesting retro standard.

I'm a little leary of air-cooled inline 4s though. I expect them to be vibey. I guess I'd need a test ride.

Personally I like vibes. Singles, twins, fours, it's all good.

YMMV.

I'd buy one of these. Heck, it might be the first bike I ever bought new. PLEASE bring it to the US!

Honda anounced it's 2013 line of cruisers today. No mention of this one.

But everyone knows we need another cruiser.

I'm not holding my breath

I really like it, but I think for the money Honda would want for it, they wouldn't move as many as they'd want to and see it as another failure in the US market. Personally, as much as I like it...if it was a couple grand more than one of the Triumph retro bikes, I don't think I'd pull the trigger, while I'm always a magic craigslist ad away from owning a Scrambler.

It'd be the last bike I ever buy new.

C'mon Honda that NC7twohamsters thingamajig gets built but not this.

I'd buy the hell out of one.

I don't care what the HP and weight is, this is a bike I'd buy on looks alone. Only thing I don't like is all the ABS junk cluttering up the front end.

This time I wouldn't make the mistake I made with my VFR1200 though.... Rather than get the first one to land and pay all the money I'd have to discipline myself to wait until the inevitable whoring out of leftover units a year later.

Off with his head!

I was wanting to buy a Honda when i got back into riding a few years ago but there was nothing that i liked. Then i saw these Zrx's and they looked alot like my Nighthawk S so i got one of those.

This cb needs a retangular headlight and more hp. Shaft drive would be nice too.

Some really nice pics over at mcnews.com.

The more I see it the more I like it. WTF is Honda thinking not bringing this bike to the US?

American Honda is thinking how pissed their dealers are going to be when they have unsold 2013 models sitting on showroom floors in 2016.

Not saying that's a good thing either but that's how it goes.
