    Let's start a head count and see if we can make Honda USA bring it over here.
    I want one. I'll take the red one (or a nice yellow).

    For 10-11K, I would be interested. I am not interested in it for 14-15K. Honda Red White and Blue for me.

    It looks like the price in euro will be 11,000 or 11,500. It is cheaper than the VFR800. I think Europeans pay about 13,000 euros for a VFR.
    The Crossover might be $10,999 for US buyers with a bit of luck.

    I want one. Lots of pieces have to fall just right though, and none of them have anything to do with Honda or the Crossrunner. I have a kid starting college next year, so I may be selling kidneys (do they have to be mine?) just to make tuition payments... :cry

    hopefully she will get that "full ride" scholarship, and Daddy will get the "new ride"...

    A two wheeled equivalent of the 4wd "crossovers" that have taken over the car market. All the looks and none of the functionality.

    Don't get it. Don't want one.

    I'm interested but I will cross shop the road version of the Tiger 800. I expect to be ready to buy my next bike in 12-18 months. If the Tiger is there and the Honda isn't, chances are I won't hold my breathe waiting for it.

    this thread is about the Crossrunner, which is the 800cc chain driven bike Honda just introduced at EICMA. The bike in the picture above is a 1200cc shaft driven CONCEPT bike that Honda showed at EICMA. Honda has a long history of showing concepts that never make it to production.

    Really??? 240?
    I mean - I do not see point in comparing to DR, but 240 for naked bike?

    Is it wet or dry?

    240 ready to ride according to the Honda Montessa site. Whether that means full tank (21.5lt) or not..
