Re: HONDA V5 for 2006

The "spy photos" of the latest MotoGP engine were false. Honda said they existed in the computer but no where else. I'll believe it when I see it. Would be interesting though.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Yeah, MCN trying to get us all excited....although where there's smoke there's fire, and I think we will see a V5 road bike pretty soon. I have also heard rumors that Honda has a V6 GP bike.

Re: HONDA V5 for 2006

I think Honda honestly has been working on a 3 cylinder motor, because the FIM is definitely going to change the rules, and as always Honda will be ready.

If we do see a road going V5, which is possible, but it's also possible that TB will get to stick Charlize, it's going to be expensive. I would eat Ramen noodles to save for a V5, but $25k-30k for it will mean very, very few of us will own it, and I doubt that many will even be made.

Re: HONDA V5 for 2006

Let's get a group buy going

I'd give up Mexican beer for that bike. I could just see it now, one of my boys calls "Hey man, we are going downtown to the spot, lots of women will be there." b23 "sorry man I can't, I can't drink beer until next year, I have to save $." "What dude? WTF are you saving for a damn ring or something?" b23 "Nahh, I've got a V5 on order" "oh **** man, I understand then."

Re: HONDA V5 for 2006

I think I heard that Honda's next GP bike will be a 900cc V-3 to comply with changing rules.

Re: HONDA V5 for 2006

I can believe the V3 MotoGP bike rumor but the V6 rumor was pretty much squashed.

Re: HONDA V5 for 2006

It says it right there "honda will be following suit with ducati", I'd say 30k is about right

Now this following buisness I don't know about - I'd think keeping an anchor of that size onboard would hurt the subframe...

Re: HONDA V5 for 2006

didn't the rc211v have a weird size engine, a 3 or 5 cylinder? I forget which

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
