Not sure if that'll go in right. Just saw this on the Honda site.

Is that Bad-ass*ed or just bad? Or bad looking? Is there an AARP model? I'm confused.... ???

Trying to woo the HD cruiser crowd, I'm sure.  Not something I'd touch with a 10 foot pole but I'm sure there are others that will like it.  Even uses the HD alphanumeric system...F6B (I mean, what the heck does that mean?).

Me likely allot and what I have been waiting for, have no need for the massive back seat and top case. I love the Wings, looks like they are going after the K1600GT concept until a re-design. I think it looks very nice, they did a great job IMHO.

I really like it!  That might make me rethink my plan of buying a wing after I turn 50........maybe 48, so only 17 more years.   ;D

The CB-1100 was even odder. And the 500X. The ST1300 is where they should send some time.

Looks like it was ridden under a tractor trailer and sheared the windshield and the backrest off.
Is there no motorcycle company that hasn't fallen into the harley look-a-like trap.

The goldwing is said to handle well.  This bike must handle excellent. 

Come on now.  Self Cancelling turn signals is an option?  Seriously Honda?

Looks like no Harley or cruiser I have ever seen, not sure what some of you are seeing? I would buy this is in a heartbeat, and I bet the Wing will handle even better in this version. I think it looks GREAT!
