I think after 'coloring outside the lines' with the Rune, staying inside the lines would be a VERY good idea for Honda.

Maybe the powerplants are like everyone else's because the mfgrs have figured out that these configurations are relatively inexpensive to poroduce and are reliable and produce good power.

RUNE?? say what? The RC51 powerpant is like everyone else's? Everyone else's what? Not the last time I looked. Remember that these powerplants are used in racing so they are constrained by series rules. Ask Ducati about having a "different" powerplant in AMA.

You mean no one's buying 'em? I thought it was "Cruiser of the Year" or something like that.

Honda is the IBM of motorcycles. Or is that General Motors? Grown too big to innovate. I would like an NSF100, but they are like $5k.

Well...if you want something interesting and challenging to ride buy an old iron-cylinder Sportster. A week on one of those will cure you of dissing Honda.

Strictly speaking, everyone else's transverse I4 is like Honda's.

Just find yourself a well tended, used Honda Blackbird and you'll have what you want.

VFR or Superhawk sound right. VFR you can add bags. Superhawk you can get soft bags.
