Seems like the whole 2008 "Dream Machine" lineup was a joke.

I enjoyed the end of post #28. Honda REALLY thinks they're going to win ever magazine test, as well as AMA SBK next year with it? Winning every single road test is a tall order, but beating Yoshimura Suzuki is nearly an insurmountable task. Not that I wouldn't love to see another team battling it out for #1

I'm all about Hondas, but I'd take the new Kawi 250 over this Honda 1k anyday based on the looks alone.

I think it looks ok if you put new pipe on it. take off mirrors in stuff. but it sure makes you do this when you first look at it

im more concerned on how it handles.

That back fender looks like it should go on a semi truck.

Don't know why everyone is making a big deal out of the rear fender/plate holder. That is the first thing to go, and is fug-ugly on all the new bikes.

That stubby short side exhaust is still ugly to me. And under tail gets a bit warm on long summer rides anyhow.

IM NOT TRADING MY BIKE ANY SOON SO I REALLY DONT CARE ABOUT THE NEW 2008 MODELS.
I REMEMBER I READ SOMEWHERE THAT HONDA WAS GOING TO MAKE A LIMITED EDITION RC211V FOR HONDA LOYALISTS-- NOT SURE IF THAT'S ACTUALLY GOING TO HAPPEN ANY SOON-- BUT THE BIKE LOOKED REALLY NICE. SOMEONE POSTED A PICTURE OF IT ABOVE. THE PRICE TAG WAS ALSO EXTRAORDINARY RANGING ABOVE $50000.

I don't like the black and silver, but it seems to look good in all of the other color variations. I like the red and black and the all black does not seem bad either.
