“Looking to the future, we are committed to advancing Honda’s legacy of environmental leadership to help address the twin challenges of global climate change and energy sustainability,” says Iwamura. “Along with a renewed focus on quality, we begin our next fifty years by accelerating our efforts to develop and deploy new technologies that put Honda at the forefront of this global challenge, to create a cleaner and more sustainable future for generations to come.”

Looks like a real shytty next 50 for old Honda. So much for anything exciting from them......kinda like the last 15 years. Should be real fun watching them try to solve a non-existant climate problem. The only thing I can think of that will be more exciting than a Honda will be watching paint dry.

Yes, we want our motorcycles to be concerned with a cleaner sustainable future. That's all we ever think about. We be socially conscious 24-7. Don't we all feel better now?

No kidding. I mean why not say, "we want to build kick-a$$ products that are environmentally friendly."

This sounds like Honda is going to build windmills. Fire that SOB will ya Honda?

Maybe we have to think outside the box to beable to come up with kickass products that are enviornmentally better? Is that too much to ask to propel the industry to another level of pollution free fast motorcycles?

What you said has NOTHING to do with what Honda is saying. As soon as they start with the 'climate change' bullshyt, you just lost my vote. I'm really tired of hearing all the PC bullshyt and someone needs to say so. I'm saying so. They need to cut the shyt and start making great, innovative products again.

Quite a ride for them though eh? they went from being a joke, to taking over an industry now back to being if not a joke then certainly a hollow shell of when Soiciro was at the helm.

Where's the nads that built Hailwoods 6 cylinder 250 or the CB750? What about Joey Dunlops RC30 and the original Interceptors, even the the CB900RR? Now they have Todeo Baba the RR's designer building two wheeled Accords and calling them motorcycles, talk about tieing a thoroughbred to a mik cart

The best they can do now is try to compete with Hyundai and build flippin robots that look like deep sea divers? Ol' Soiciro must be spinning fast enough to power half of Tokyo by now.
