I want that CB1100 but I'm going to wait to see what the MPG is like, because 3.9 gallons seems kind of small unless the gas mileage is good, and I'd need a sissybar and luggage rack... passenger has to ride in luxury ya know.

F6B Commercial...

That is about as bad a motorcycle commercial as I have ever heard... I wonder if we can "out" the advertising agency?

Yeah, I think it was a good idea for them.

Wow. Whoda thunk?

The sleeping giant has awakened. I am definitely a Honda fanboy, having owned their bikes and cars almost exclusively since 1980. That said, there has been nothing in the bike lineup to interest me, but then they brought in the NC700. Then, the CRF250. OK, I did like the CBR250, and sat on the the NT700, a bit too heavy imho.


But wow. Reasons to go to the dealer now.


If they do that with the car division, like bring back the CRX Si, I will also replace my aging 02 Civic SI.

Literally, every time I've been on the Blue Ridge Parkway riding a 'wing since '05 or so I've actually thought "man, I wish I could get rid of this stupid fairing and windshield and just have a stripped down version of this bike."

Seriously.

I think it's a great practical alternative to the mile muncher with the barn door frontal area that locks out the world.

damn. I just saw the gold wing, I have never drooled over one of those before. I could get the repsol CBR and play Casey Stoner on the local mountain.


That CB1100 rocks.

If I did spend my money, I like the CB500x best. Maybe.

Wow, I'm kinda impressed with the stripped goldwing also for some reason.

If they continue to offer a version like that in the future, I will certainly consider it when I'm ready for a goldwing type motorcycle.

Never ever thought I'd even look twice at the GW, Kinda cool-matching the V Twin copycats with the flat 6.
The Retro Bike?? Honestly how freaking cool
Don't know enough about sport bikes to comment further
Honda taking chances

^this^

Honda truly lost their way in both motorcycle and car divisions. The car division has not found their way yet...

Each to their own, but I think that Goldwing is hideous. The video doesn't help. Back end visuals are like a Victory.

Love the "Gold King" though I doubt I will ever own a 800+ lb bike.

Also love the CB1100 and CB500x.

Surprised the Integra isn't in this bunch.

You are way too easily impressed.

As to the wing. It looks like a concession to the folks who really want a Tour Glide or that Victory monstrosity. Actually, a certain un-named former SPEED TV announcer had a Wing with a chopped shield and some other mods that he called 'Frankenwing." Difference was, he actually put a good suspension under it and it handled well enough to make it fun. Don't think that big pig has that capability.

The CBR500 looks like a nice step up for the owners of the CBR250 and Ninja 250. I didn't notice the price, but if it's reasonable, it'll sell.

But overall, yawn.
