Man, you think they could have copied a Monster any better? Sheesh! Is this all Honda has left in the tank? What a sad commentary on a once great motorcycle company.

Cool

Wow saw the VTR250 and thought it was a remake of the Barbi-ceptor.

It looks like a cheesy Gladius to me. At least it doesn't have the hideous name.

Do you know how you catch a one of a kind rabbit?
Unique up on it.

If Honda listed these things at a decent price point it'd be different. One can stand copycatting when one is getting a lower price. But ol' Honda charges premium prices for their copycat stuff and then regales us with their bogus "industry leader" doo-dah.

Yeah really. Why pay $5900 for a 250 when a Suzook or Kwacker 650 is only a couple clams away.

The VTR250 has looked essentially like this since the mid-late '90s (nekkid w/trellis frame).

Only, not here in Amerika. (mostly it was sold in Japan an' Down Unda')

Do you s'pose now that the Dali Obama is turning us all into Euro-peonz that we'll get some of the cool bikes they get over there?

So Honda bought Ducati? Is this some kind of April Fool's joke? C'mon guys. Seriously?!
