I like the VFRs.... look like nice all around bikes.
And the single-sided swing-arms look great on custom streetfighters

Also glad to see more middle-weight sporty bikes like the cbr650f (not supersports). I liked my 650r... but haven't been a fan of the styling they've taken on recently. (even though mine is the most dated looking model). I'll be curious how that cyl's power curve feels.

That is an option, base model is probably just the old style linked system.

In the closeup pic of the front wheel, I only saw 1 brake line going to the caliper.

They are in other markets (Honda’s Dual Combined Brake System) where ABS wasn't available. With this update they might dump that but I don't see why they would given it is a sports touring bike.

Otherwise, will just have to wait for a used model.
Have you priced a new 600 lately?

I already told Honda of Houston that I want a test ride when they get one. I doubt I can get one any time soon as racing is going to take all my $$ but I still want to ride it.

I wonder how it will sound? For your entertainment, here's an old, crappy video of my 06 starting up and running without mufflers when I was rebuilding it from a crash. Love the V4

Nice!

I like it, hopefully they gave it a little more than 100 ponies, and lost at least 20 lbs though.

That CBR650 sure looks like a Honda version of Yamaha's FZ6R.
