I'm hip to it! Looks light and fast. It has good lines.

I have a thing for large tanks and fewer fillups though. That one looks slim to keep the lines flowing.

Looks like it's direct drive. How is direct drive these days?

i gotta say i dig it...but they are thinking:

Honda's choice to use a 1300cc engine for a bike intended to appeal to the compensating crowd is also somewhat puzzling, but could at least indicate a sub-$20,000 price tag.

so they are thinking a direct competitor to the yami warrior... i love the looks... but dont like some of the color variations/rim matches...if i went gray, it would HAVE to come with the chromed out rims...those gra rims dont look right

also, thats a super skinney front tire...wonder how much of a lean angle you can get on it without having to worry about low-siding on it...

then the exhaust...its not pretty, but its a hell of alot better then the GIANT ASS COFFEE can they use on some of the warriors like the onyx black my lil bro has...

then only a single front brake rotor?...how well does that hold up under sudden stops or even long wear?...would make me think it might be able to warp if it gets too hot in too much stop and go traffic after time...

im also wondering about the rake angle...and what about the lean angle when its on its stand...look at the 3rd pic and they got a block of wood under the kickstand...is that to make it lok like it doesnt have too much of a lean in a parked position?....

overall looks...i gotta say though i really dig it...might just have to take this out for a ride when they come out...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

the rear fender radius to the tire hurts my eyes, but the tank I like.
also nice job getting the radiator in the frame. unlike a V-rod!!
that dam D.O.T. reflector also on the rear fender would have to come off first.

The fender radius is probably right when you sit on it....

Ditch the reflectors along with the black plastic turn signal mount.



And Thunderstruck ....... skinner tire single brake, handling.

How un-honda-like.
I kinda like it, and I hate choppers.
As for brakes, you really thinks a cruiser needs dual fronts?!?
Besides, that tire could never handle it.

yea, i think something that heavy needs as much brake as it can get. more weight needs more tq to stop.

That bike looks light plus the weight distribution is different.

it's still gonna nose dive when you grab the front brake.

sportbikes are much lighter, i'm sure, and carry dual fronts.

actually, the current VTX13's have single front brake rotors and they work quite well. Cruiser bikes actually stop better using a combination of front and rear, and the rear works well also.

there's gonna be an ABS model as well, with the same hi-tech gadgetry as found on the new Honda CBR10RR and CBR600RR.

and now that i look at it, the front rotor is a full floating high performance brake rotor, granted the caliper isnt radial mounted, but this bike prolly tops out at 115-120mph, its never going to stop like a sportbike, no matter what brakes are out front.

and on the exhaust, that'd be my first purchase, something short and turned out i think, but the stockers def look alot better than some of the other bikes on market, considering the current EPA regulations.

HE MADE A FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



EPA...seriously...other then i think arizona...who else does any sort of EPA regulation on bikes?

my friend julie and her pals out there told me that they do check the bikes to make sure they r in spec's...but i have never really honestly heard of anything of the sort for a fucking bike...and man is that a joke...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

it's still a law so regardless of the enforcment an OEM has to make the bike to spec or they can't sell it.

Unlike the cars, they submit the bikes to the EPA where the testing is done, and they dont have to come back every year or two.

and i meant a shorty, turned out aftermarket exhaust would be my first purchase. just to be clear.

There are a ton of EPA regulations on bikes. They have to meet them in order to be sold on our shores and there are even bikes with different equipment fitted just to me CA regulations. What ever you do after purchase is on you.
But yes, there are EPA regs for bikes and the are enforced.
