Nah, the total market for a full-on chopper is miniscule these days, regardless of price.

Seems like the current growing trend with Honda these days, you know follow the leader.(the leader not being Honda)

Imo Honda is has been living off their name for the last 10 or so years. Where's the fuel injection already?

I'm betting this will be priced like the Rune was. I would not be surprised if the base model was at $18,999 and the top-o-the-line model went for $24,999.

And it might even have more horsepower than the long departed 450 Rebel!

I like the looks - clean and simple. I think it actually looks better than the Yamaha Raider. The Honda reliability is a plus, too. However, I thought the whole chopper fad was kinda over. Didn't Honda get the memo? Bobbers and supermoto bikes are the new cool.

Great point. Last time I looked at a Big Dog it was pretty pricey. Honda's reliability and price might make it the last mass market hurrah for choppers.

You're right, but then again, a pile of dog doo looks better than the Raider.

What's with this "Honda reliability" nonsense too?
