    It's hideous... but... honda is stepping out of the comfort zone and innovating. Have to respect that.

    Interesting.
    It's like the Fury and the DN-01 had a baby.

    Honda stepped outside of the box. Unfortunately it was into the styling pigpen that BMW just crawled out of.

    You know how everyone says at some age you fall off the fasion wagon and from there on out, stuff from that time period is what looks good to you and everything newer looks like crap....I think I'm about to fall off.

    The whole thing is hard to swallow but that back rest is just what kicks you in the nuts. Why does it have to be sure tall? It's like it was an afterthought, someone in the design department hacked off the end of their wife's ironing board, stuck it up there, stood back and thought...yeah that's it!

    The backrest is a hinged passenger seat, an idea recycled from the Big Ruckus.
    It looks like Version 2 of the DoNot Order-1

    My opinion. It's UUUGGGLLY. And has a science fiction look to it. Why can't Honda get back to building real motorcycles? The CB1100 shows that they do know how.

    Dammit Honda!

    Why did you have to saddle the NC series with this abomination. That's just great. Now there's another thing for everyone to snicker at besides them being "scooters" and kissing cousins to bizarro forward control cruiser...things.

    They are going to make DN-01's whether the entire world hates them or not, come hell or high water. :huh

    Give it a rest already! :puke1

    I thought the Big Rucki were great machines and full of neato ideas that matched their practicality.
    This is for sure verse two of the same song.
