I would definitely consider trading my Victory for it.

This is a "bad ass" 6 cyl Honda bagger....



the "new" F6B is a Wing with a lopped off trunk, and wind screen...

YMMV...

I agree, it has a kind of edgyness to it like a Victory.

I too, think it needs a name. Honda's sometimes have both designation codes and names, so it wouldn't be unprecidented. The VFR1000 is called Interceptor, RVT1000 is called RC51 (2 designation codes? )...

How about "Blackwing"?...or..."Blackhawk"? I dunno, just throwing out possibilities.

I have finally come to the sad realization that Honda will not make an updated Valkyrie. Nor will they make me the EVO6 I want. I will take a serious look at the F6B. I like it.

I like the F6B, as much as that seems weird for me. Were I to ever be in the market for this type of bike (which isn't likely), I'd certainly take a peek at it. Then I'd buy something used because I don't think I'd ever get the gumption to write a $20k check for a bike.

And, no, I don't own a KLR .

Not on the website. Nor is there ABS, unless I'm missing something.

I wouldn't get a road bike now without ABS. Love it in the rain.

Im sure its a good bike but really? It looks to me like they removed trunk and cut down the screen and gave it a dumb name. Then again BMW has gt and gtl variations.

I love that Honda can do this, cool idea, maybe an even better ride, can they make it sound wicked - never rode a wing but this looks like a fabulous way to get into the long haul interstate riding, I like it,got to see it in person

The black one looks good and the price is better but it still weighs nearly a half ton! No matter how smooth that boxer is, the power to weight ratio says it all.
