Look at the ergonomics once....you'd need 45" long arms to ride that thing cruiser style. It's pretty but the '04 will barely resemble it. Compare to a softail. And do you really think Honda will sell a reverse-springer front end?????????



grrrrrr...dang pic won't post...

I love the look from this angle, but from the rear you still have to shake your head at that 6-cylinder. sticking out of the frame. I think rickpoco has a point, are you sure this is really a motorcycle? What do you suppose this thing weighs?

Reminds me of something Arlen Ness would put out, but without the costly price tag! (we hope)

They can come on after The MOCO all they want. I hope they slap the taste out a The MOCO's Corporate Mouth, BUT! , they still don't get it and never will.

One thing The MOCO has managed to maintain, is that they build a bike with a soul. The bike y'all are talking about is neat looking, but it has no soul.

Go on, look at it and you will see Jimmy is right on this one.

Looks like a GM styling studio exercise from the early 40's (pre-12-7-41). To me the definition of a 6 cylinder Honda is the CBX.

Article on '04 hondas

Here is a write up on it. I kinda like it. The forks are intresting,and I like the rear wheel and rear end. But i wouldn't buy one. It looks top heavy as hell.

Do any of your friends resemble the kid with the banjo in Deliverance?

Looks like a cross between the VTX1800 and a Valk to me. Kinda cool, but since i owned a honda before I know how top heavy they are and i know this one will be no different.

Well, there seems to be a developing trend of longterm Harley riders going to other bikes, but that thing sure isn't it.

Honda builds some great bikes, like the VFR800 and ST1300, and Yamaha has the FJR1300, but even the GoldWings have quite a few shortcomings.
One of these days someone is going to build an alternative, but as of now the only real option is the R1150RT

I guess I still feel a bike has to be a V-twin or parallel twin, no matter what Honda does, I owned two Hondas 1100 Shadow for the money good bikes but no where near my Harley. Gold Wings look like a cross between a VW and a space ship and there are no floor boards, Honda just doesn't get it . Now if they put that 1800 V twin in a bike like an Electra Glide I would be tempted.
