Heres a nice video from the Tokyo motor show of the New VFR-1200F.

I hope we get the white one. I think that will be my next bike in a few years..

front of the bike where the side panels meet the headlight looks like a shogun warrior or Optimus Prime. Something of that nature. phhhssssshhh... japanese and there historical influences... (sarcasim looks good just different)

I've never found any sport touring models particularly pleasing to the eye.
However, they say this one looks much nicer in person than the pictures show. I'm more interested in the way this machine will ride. The gold wings feels too big and heavy to me, soo I think this would be a nice compromise between that and the current gen vfr-800.

IDK the wing is just such a great bike on the open road. We should attempt to convince Garzilla to let us borrow some and hit the hill country for a ride report

Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't the VFR have some sort of button shifter?

I like it. I believe one model comes with a dual transmission (auto/manual) with hand shifter. The pictures of the front are old ones that were floating around the internet a while bike. I think the actual bike looks much better.

I like it overall. It's just that headlight assembly up front!
