Dear Honda,
Thank you for bringing the funky DT-01. Problem is you're selling a $9500 bike for 50% than it's worth in this market. Sorry to tell you that you are doomed to sell as many of these as the Rune. Please get back to me when your your marketing people stop using inhalants and price the bike properly.

I like it too. It reminds me of a modernized version of the Gurney Alligator.

I agree, it's way too expensive. I guess Honda figures it will sell in such small numbers, they'd lose money at a lower price.

Dn-01
 
DN-01: funky, kinda cool, and breaks new styling ground. I'm confused by it, but I'm also a longtime biker and perhaps not their intended demographic. But $14,599?? I know stuff is expensive now due to the weak dollar, etc., but $2K more than the blistering, peak-performing CBR1000RR? What's that paying for, the automatic transmission? At $9000, a 700cc twin would be a tough sell; $14.5K is absurd. Yep, it's another Rune, destined to sit on showroom floors for years while dealers lose money on floorplan financing.

A 12ga. broomhandle is not a "shotgun", no-matter WHAT colour he paints it.

So these guys used to be the industry leader? I haven't seen such a boring and overpriced lineup since the 2008 Cubs.
