    Honda V4 2010

    Came across this comment


    While Honda haven’t shown the much-anticipated VFR1000 this year, they’ve announced they will make an all-new V4-powered bike, which will be out in the market by early 2010. No word on what this bike will actually be – an all-out sportsbike, sports-tourer or something else.

    along with this

    Honda have also announced that they will be working on the development of a ‘next generation’ transmission, which would be based on dual-clutch technology. According to a company press release, this would combine the advantages of race and road transmission set-ups, and will provide dynamic and smoother gear shifts, with less impact on the chassis.

    Honda believes its next generation transmission will help improve the riding experience and will provide better fuel economy and more efficient power transfer compared to the conventional manual transmission.

    if they were even to put the old rvf 750 and 400 back into production with fuel injection i bet there'd be a market for them... i'd buy both if i had the money (or alteast enough to make a deposit)

    Yes but weren't those two bikes sold at a loss? Wouldn't be any cheaper to make them today, one would expect. Hardly an incentive for them to sell them again, even if they sold like hotcakes.

    Dream on.
    Whatever it is, it's bound to be lame.
    Honda don't give a crap about what bikers want.
    ... and that's what I think.

    Or summat.


    Or maybe not...

    Dunno really....

    Yet you ride one.^^^
    Wouldn't it be cool if they did a real race rep again and made a true roadgoing (and obviously a hell of a lot slower) RC212V Rather then just putting the same fairing shape on a cbr like they do now... Kinda like the old rg500's to copy the rgvr's...

    Yes. Coz I'm a dick.
    And don't test-ride enough bikes each time I get another one.
    However, I can blame my wife for this one. She made me buy it.

    I still like it though!
    But soon I will have wrecked it.
    And then my wife will say "You're OLD! Give it up!"
    Then I'll have to kill her, in a non-obvious way, of course.
    She's well insured, so I will then be able to buy a proper (non-ghey) bike.
    Although buying another ghey bike might be a good idea, because after I've killed her, I'll have no-one to have sex with.
    Oh wait... it'll be the same as now: having sex with myself.
    ... and that's what I think.

    Or summat.

    I'm strangely disturbed at the moment.
