That's cool; I really loved my VFR. I can't ride a sportbike anymore, but I'm glad they're building one.

Hmmm. Honda pricing has improved lately and now Honda is going to do this? Has Honda's motorcycle division been taken over by motorcycle enthusiasts again? It's about time they took control away from the car guys.

Default Global Initiative

"With a goal of earning 39 million global customers across its power equipment, automobile and motorcycle line of products by 2017, Honda CEO Takanobu Ito announced a handful of exciting new models for the latter two that range from high performance to fuel efficient.
Honda will be introducing a new super sports bike based on the Honda's MotoGP racing bike. No additional information was available about this motorcycle, but Ito did say that it would be similar to the VFR750R homologation bike that was made in limited numbers from 1987 through 1990."

If a better motorcycle offering is part of their global strategy I welcome it.I miss my old VFR.
