Neat, but you forgot to mention the Hondamatic Civic's in 1975 with the miserable slush box that brought the power down to hamster wheel levels.

A couple of retractable wheels and I'd be set....

Damn, where were you during the copy-editing process! I'm reluctantly glad you did. I'll get it fixed up.

Default I wish...

I wish Honda would direct their resources towards providing us a new VFR, or a touring-oriented Blackbird. Instead we get choppers and this tupperware thing. They won't even bring over the much-cooler European 600 Hornet. To attract the new rider market they should have just tweaked the 650 Hawk platform with hard bags, shaft, and wind protection, which I believe is/was called the Deuville. Wake up Honda!

Well, the DN-01 is basically the Hawk's motor with a shaft drive and wind protection...

I would've much rather have had the Trans-Alp that this abomination. Way to go Honda.

Default Honda cranks out another loser!

Who is going to want to own this loser? Who does their marketing research? Surely Obama can do something about this!
