They ought call it a "Semen-Style" trike, for the same reasons.
The Spyder is a pretty neat vehicle, but it is not a motorcycle. Motorcycles have 2 wheels. Add a third wheel and it is no longer a motorcycle, unless it has a sidecar, in which case it is a motorcycle/sidecar combination, or a hack.
With the prices of motorcycles rapidly leaving orbit and heading out into space, about the only people that can afford them anymore are old people, the so called baby boomers. And many of them cannot handle a large motorcycle, and with small motorcycles rapidly disappearing, I can see many of them opting for a trike. But then there are teenagers around here riding Hayabusas, and I can't figure out how they managed to pay for them, let alone the insurance, which is usually more than the cost of the bike. Rich grandparents?
I hope Honda bring in a new VFR 800,1000 or 1200, 21litres fuel decent styling and usual great engine will be a winner
Maybe a pink or Chartreuse XR650L this time......ho hum honda
I see quite a few Spyders everytime I ride during the summer months. They look like fun.
They already announced they are bringing back the Rebel 250.
After a walk through a Honda dealership, thousands of riders have needed a nap.
With you on this. However, I think it's extremely unlikely.
I think a quick visit to Honda UK's site and you can find each 'new' bike for the USA.
Those bikes being? The only things shown on their site are the CB1100 and that scooter with the goofy Repsol livery.
Or are you saying we'll just be getting some bikes already for sale in the UK market?
I LOVE that bike.
I've heard it only has a 3.5 gallon tank though.
I'm saying ones already released in the UK. Crosstourer, crossrunner, NC700S. That's the easy three. I'm guessing at least one will be a 'new' cruiser. I'm not expecting anything all new.
They aint got a hair on there ass unless they bring me this!
And it aint going to happen.
If this is one of them (doubt it), I'll be making a trip to my Honda dealer.
Wow, I like the UK's selection of bikes much better...
I would guess the naked CBR500 will probably be in there, along with a BNG/Price change to the Rebel or Shadow. Or the V4 superbike that they talked about building.
Me too. It doesn't have what I'm really looking for, but okay - that's what it is. I don't have to buy a Honda. I'd be still very happy if Honda brought more of the "standard" models to the US.
If I could create a wish list, I'd have these bikes here:
- CrossTourer (easy bet, it's new, it competes in one of the hot classes)
- CrossRunner (hmmm, I don't know, good idea, imho bad execution)
- NC700S (easy, just the naked version of what they already introduced here)
Now it gets interesting, but if it were for me, I'd like to see:
There is a pretty big gap in Honda's naked bike section, but I'm unclear whether it makes any sense importing these to the US as they are not really selling here. From my perspective, they should be made available, but that's me being a customer, not me thinking in corporate terms.
I'm going to the Cycle World show this weekend in Dallas. I assume these new models should be there. If so, I'll drop a note on this thread. ,BK
You ride a Vulcan 750. Your taste is already in question. Then you impugn the VTX engines?
