Anime, is that like Astro Boy?
No, it's like



this. I started out thinking 'hrmf' and am growing more in love with the NM4 every day. Haven't tried paddle shifters on a motorcycle yet, but I do like them on cars; very easy to trailbrake into corners and blip.

Today a little report popped onto Gizmag from the Tokyo Motor show.
All the comments in the photos seemed to indicate this bike was the Big Star of the show.

I also noticed those 'shoulders' on the fairing open up for storage too

Actually the manual NC700X is quicker than a 1200 Sportster. It's close unlike the 883 which a Honda Shadow could probably out accelerate.

Gizmag is one of the best mags for bikes.

some new videos were released only a few weeks ago. Have a look. The black version looks really raw: mad max / batman raw ; I'd love to have it if I was still in school,

But the white ... why does it look like riding a wheelchair

From this angle I really like it:

But I the specs say it will come with side cases standard. while functional, they do take away some of the cool factor IMO.

Dear Honda, thanks for overtaking Victory, in the "Ugliest Steaming Pile of Bolted Plastic and Metal, Pretending to be a Motorcycle" category.

Absolutely putrid but at least it takes the spotlight off of Vision and Wee-Strom owners.
