Word is, it's not coming to the US. At least not soon.

Ha! Honda would be stupid to spend the money needed to get the bike certified here. They'd never sell more than a couple dozen.

Price that thing at $8k and you'll sell twice as many CBs vs the 919. Hell, they'd sell better than the Fury.

Certified means odo and lighting changes. I'd bet the exhaust is already CARB friendly.

You know as well as I do that Honda will price it way above the 1250 Bandit. And it's moot because it doesn't have a fairing. It won't sell. Period. That doesn't mean I like it that way. It's just that the USA's buying public had proven the lack of interest in naked standards.

Honda might fall for the dopes on the internet, I guess. That worked out real well for Buell.
