Thumbs down New Honda V4

Over at MCN, they have photos of what they say is Honda's new V-4:

UK Exclusive: New Honda V4 spied in action - | Motorbike reviews | Latest Bike Videos | MCN

What I find interesting is, the pictures were taken here in the US.

No magazines with any nuttage over here, so the photographer had to sell them to the Brits to get them published.

Edit: I was wrong. At least one publication in the US bought them.

Apparently you didn't get all the spam from Kook in your inbox.

The nutcase claims he predicted a V4 1200 I think. I seem to remember loon boy predicting a V4 800 which of course, Honda already makes.

He predicted my cat was going to lick it's a$$ at some point today. I'll go look now.

looks vaguely BMW'ish from the side, at any rate good for Honda, it's about time they showed some nards with a new design.

You read that stuff? I always delete it unread. It quit being funny about a decade ago.

Does it really matter? He's ALWAYS correct in his predictions. All you need to do is alter every prediction to match what happens and you are a winner! It is the favorite of lunatics everywhere.

That bike, if it is in fact the new 1200 VFR, looks very nice!

The rider needs to stop for food more often.

I wonder if they will screw up the hard bag issue like the last time they introduced a 'new and improved' model.

You know it could be a nice ride if they add some BMW-like features (like ESA) without BMW-like cost.

Make it sound like a real V4 instead of the flaccid ST1300 and it could be a winner.

Looks like Willow? Dont like the Vfr but it looks great, agree with the bmw statment until you see the crankcase cover. Cool not my thing but cool! The VFR was my first bike.

The swing arm sure looks VFRish. I watched one blow by me this morning on the interstate. I was buzzing along at 90 in the HOV lane on The Big 'Un when the Viffer went by splitting lanes. Musta been doing 120 if not more. Alas, I miss those days when I didn't have to be a responsible adult.
