    Just a few more days to find out...
    CBR500 for sure.
    I am guessing the CB1100, CB500X but that only makes 3.
    So what else?...
    A supermotard version of the CRF250L?
    A new cruiser?

    A motard would be sweet, although that segment has sort of died here in the states so I wonder if Honda would even bother. Isn't the CBR600RR due for a refresh? Maybe that's one of the new bikes. Oh and that XR650L has been unchanged for what seems like a decade. Maybe they're gonna intro a new dual sport 650, but you'd think we would have heard about it by now.

    A new CBR 600RR would make sense. The ST1300 sure could use a lifting. The CBF 1000 and 600 are sold in Canada. May be one of them will cross the border?

    But all in all, I'm just happy Honda will be offering more choices.

    maybe one or both of the other bikes that use the nc700x chassis. I would love to see the cbf1000 or the cb1300

    That article is from early September so I don't think so. Plus the new colors for the CBR250R have already been announced - and that was back in September too.
    So I think we're in for something good. It's just a matter of how good it's going to be... Who knows? It might even be great. I think Honda started a comeback with the CBR250R and the NC700X. Let's give them a chance and see what else they've got.

    The CBR500R and probably the NC700S the standard street version of the current NC700.

    The GL1800 is about due for retirement... Maybe a new Goldwing?

    2013 already announced...same as the 2012 refresh/changes. Most likely a few more years of BNG!
