My favorite Honda is the one I mow my lawn with. But the i3000 generator has my eye...

Is that the fuel-injected one, with the double overhead cams and the dual exhaust? NICE...and it's RED!

I would also say they have a decent resale value when the market is good as well. Personally I would like to see an 1800 touring bagger like the X-Country & Vaquero in the Honda line up that could bridge the VT and Goldwing lines. It could be that Honda is testing the waters a little with the Slammer concept.
I think part of the reason Honda stopped production of the Valkrye (sp?) was due to it costing Wing sales. Yamaha too stoped the Tour Deluxe due to declined "higher end" bikes.

Honda wanted people to vote on these bikes at the IMS show. This is the same kind of contest that resulted in the Rune. Remember that fiasco?

Personally, I liked the Cobra-built flattracker and scrambler better.

Default Concept Bikes

Maybe it is the pictures, maybe it is me but, I cannot get excited about any of them. The bagger is cartoonish. It could be the Batbike. Yet it is the best of the three. The other two just do not have the kind of "pop" I expect from a concept vehicle. The drag bike looks like you have to lay over the tank to ride it. Maybe that is the case. The other bike is just uninspired.

3 months for this?

I saw these bikes at the IMS show, and the "slammer" was pretty darn cool! Skinny front tires aren't functional enough for me, though.

I also thought that the handlebars on the Interstate were a perfect fit for me width-wise. I'd love to put these on my M50.
