Default New CBR 1000RR for '08

Seen on another site: New Honda CBR 1000RR. Probably continues with the I-4. Traction control and all sorts of electronic trickery including multiple switchable fuel maps (like the GSX-R 1K). Expected to be introduced this fall.

Sorry, no V-5 or V-4 for all those that were wishing. You know who you are.

.. instead of another cookie cutter completely-unsuitable-for-public-roads exercise in excess Honda surprises us and comes out with something that hasn't been done to death? How about an Adventure Tourer under 500 pounds with the Super Hawk engine in it? Now THAT would be something to sink my teeth into.

The Superhawk only got 25 miles per gallon so I don't know how much "adventure" you would get out of it.

May I agree with you on this 'un? And as for you, Der Buzmeister, the Superduper Hawk motors thirst can be fixed. After all, it'd -assumin' we EVER see it - would have to comply with Euro2, 3 or whatever...HEY! I already does! They call it the Varadero! It do need to drop about 30 lbs and needs a lower saddle, but what don't these days.

One of them there "Du-Villes" would make a nice lightweight tourer like the BMW 800ST.

Too bad we only want hypersports that belong on a track or 900 lb retro cruisers so we can hang out at the A&W and pretend we're hard.
