Kraven,

If you talk to that Honda rep again..talk hard....let him know that if Honda just brings this new bike out for europe only he's gonna have a castle revolt from all the US Honda fans that have been waiting since 1990.

Its almost easier to kick over a BRP than to push a button. Plus it gives you so much more street cred at the squid hangouts.
