So much for the big-bang engine configuration theory...

Thing looks promising, wonder if they'll give some away to privateers.

It's kinda funny. Ten years ago, my perception of Team Green is that they put out bikes with stompin' motors, but no soul. Now (IMHO), they are putting out bikes with nearly as much soul as the venerable Ducati and the phoenix of all bike manufacturers, Triumph. Man, have times changed!

Oh! By the way, just where is Honda these days? They have become almost as clinical and soul-less as the Germans used to be. Even BMW is on the... SOOOOOOULLLL train!

Mighty Honda has seemed relatively rudderless since Soichiro died. Still some of the best engineers in the world, but it seems like they've been somewhat shackled by stockholders and a lack of a visionary leader. But I'm not ready to count them out.

Honda is a car company that sells motorcycles as a side venture.

I know, but they used to be THE leader. Now?
