    I looked at it once and didn't like it. Maybe I need to take another look and quit dreaming of a New V-Max engine on a 1st Gen.....

    ,,,, what da heck,,, must be the year for corporate chain jerking of the consumer or something

    1st Polaris yanks the rug out from under their faithful Victory riders...
    Next Mom Yam pulls our strings by telling us she is gonna turn the touring world upside down and ends up using an Air Cooled motor to attempt to perform that task.
    Now Honda, good ol dependable Honda, said they were gonna do a series of teaser vids up to the unveil day of the 24th.. Problem is,, it's the 24'th and no additional vid's and no unveil.. Getting kinda nervous,,,,, in a good kind of way,,, come on Honda,, lower the boom, make motorcycling history like you did with the SOHC750 - CR250M Elsinore - TRX250R Quad - MB5 - Hurricane and so many others, hope we aint been had (again) and this is all about a 175 horse Beemer whoopin of a machine with precision frame/steering geometry that leaves nothing but a vapor trail and leaning over of Ponderosa Pine trees up on the entrance of the North Rim for those tourers so inclined to enjoy such a thrill..
    Kretz = An explanation about all that time flying by? When you were a young scallywag, say 6 years old; one year was a 6th of your lifetime. Now at 60; one year is a 60th of your lifespan & so seems to whiz by in a blink of the proverbial eye. Ten times as fast as when you were that little kid!

    I presumed the one there is a picture of before the video starts is some special cost variant or some-such. I suppose we'll know more soon.

    It was at that facebook link that was posted. I watched. it was 30 minutes of Honda sales guys talking to some local dealers and showing a few videos they will use for future media spots. Just the Goldwing and bagger models we've already seen. Nothing about the new Valkyrie. Claimed 20% better gas mileage with new engineering. Thats always a good thing for a touring bike. As well as better performance and handling. 8 year warranty. 3 year full factory, and 5 more available extended warranty.

    Its on the regular web page now. msrp base model $23,500

    Indeed,, just caught the unveil in California.. WOW = nice scoot!! Here is a link to the new video release = definitely a step in the right direction and then some IMHO... I cant wait to see the specs on this new 4 valve motor. They said they dropped over 90 pounds off the total weight = would LOVE to calculate a HP/weight ratio!! Could be really interesting!!!!
