CBR1000RRRR = .001% better than last year. Whodathunk.

How much ya wanna bet that the internet and us all bytching about the Japanese being a bunch of liars is what changed Honda's policy about listing dry weights?

Come to think of of it this makes it the first time that Honda's been the leader at anything in a decade! And two dual sports now. A 230cc! Honda must have noticed all the 250s that Kawasaki's been selling and finally decided to join in.

Honda... firmly behind the curve for 15 years. But better fit and finish, you bet. Well worth the extra $1000 for a name and some polished aluminum.

MCN claims the 175kilo/175hp figure is a first for a litre sportbike. Any truth to that? I like the new look of the CBR but the Yamaha R6 has a trick new "quick-disconnect" set up for the tag/turnsignal system that should be adopted by all for track day events.

I can't get over what they are getting for their outboard motors!

And the bigger ones don't come with controls or a propellor!

And I still "...may not edit your posts".

Anyone caught "Ocean Force" on Court TV yet? One of several reasons not to ride after dark around here.

The HondJet is kind of neat.

So what does everyone think Honda has planned in the future. Do you think they will pull out of the two wheeled market? They haven't exactly been keeping their lineup fresh over the past 5 years and there seems to be little indication of them doing anything different down the road.
