They already announced they are bringing back the Rebel 250.

Now if they made it something like this. It doesn't need to be that wild, but at least give us some nice running gear.



Fingers crossed

With you on this. However, I think it's extremely unlikely.

I think a quick visit to Honda UK's site and you can find each 'new' bike for the USA.

Those bikes being? The only things shown on their site are the CB1100 and that scooter with the goofy Repsol livery.

Or are you saying we'll just be getting some bikes already for sale in the UK market?

I'm saying ones already released in the UK. Crosstourer, crossrunner, NC700S. That's the easy three. I'm guessing at least one will be a 'new' cruiser. I'm not expecting anything all new.

If this is one of them (doubt it), I'll be making a trip to my Honda dealer.

And some cruiser.

Just my guess.
I would guess the naked CBR500 will probably be in there, along with a BNG/Price change to the Rebel or Shadow. Or the V4 superbike that they talked about building.

Me too. It doesn't have what I'm really looking for, but okay - that's what it is. I don't have to buy a Honda. I'd be still very happy if Honda brought more of the "standard" models to the US.

If I could create a wish list, I'd have these bikes here:

- CrossTourer (easy bet, it's new, it competes in one of the hot classes)
- CrossRunner (hmmm, I don't know, good idea, imho bad execution)
- NC700S (easy, just the naked version of what they already introduced here)

Now it gets interesting, but if it were for me, I'd like to see:

- CBF1000F
- CBF600F
- CB1300S

There is a pretty big gap in Honda's naked bike section, but I'm unclear whether it makes any sense importing these to the US as they are not really selling here. From my perspective, they should be made available, but that's me being a customer, not me thinking in corporate terms.

I'm going to the Cycle World show this weekend in Dallas. I assume these new models should be there. If so, I'll drop a note on this thread. ,BK

You ride a Vulcan 750. Your taste is already in question. Then you impugn the VTX engines?
Dude.
