No need for it. Nakeds don't sell very well here and it'll have to compete against Suzuki's 1250 Bandit with the added serious disadvantage of Honda overpricing.

I think it looks pretty cool, if it was competitive with the new Bandit and FZ1 I'd give it a look.

It's supposed to have different mapping than the RR tuned motor. That's it. So, bank on a 150hp bike. But we'll never see it. Honda would have to ask about as much as the CBR- there is no point in shipping it.

I bet it would be more than the CBR. Think B-King and Busa. The B-King is more money. Can't figure out why a slower bike with less plastic = more cash, but there are lots of things I can't figure out.
