I can't even get my dealer to order one to look at, haven't had a CBR1000 on the showroom floor there in probably 5 years, what a change from when the 929 came out and I had to get 8 of them ready for sale in one day.

Crumbs! After Ian's comment, I was about to ask "What 25 year old classic bike will people be buying in 2044?".

Then I realised it will be Roberta's 1000, and if the sales volumes are low, it will be rare and worth a fortune!

Which reminds me, I need to start planning to make my own high quality, high energy-density liquid fuel in 20 litre batches .......

That's kinda of true Duncan, unfortunately the recent 1k's aren't that awesome, otherwise it would be selling and winning World Superbike Titles.........or MotoAmerica titles or any other titles for that matter (truthfully there may be some, but I'm not researching it )

In 25 years I don't think the recent 1k's will be as coveted as the old round eyes, even in their rarity

Also agree.

My 2018 CBR1000RR SP2 was/is supposed to be a 'special' bike. In 25 years it will be relegated to 'just another Blade'. Although I didn't buy it as pure investment, its value evaporates faster than a Sahara oasis.

Prices of all Tadao Baba's Blades in UK alone hold their place very well both in value and interest.

I now wait for the 2020 'all new' Blade claimed to be released at the next Tokyo Motor Show.

Although I would "kill" for a brand new blade (2018 or whatever), I would really love to see the "new" blade be an extreme redo and a V-4 at the very least, following the lines of the RC213V. It would need GP horsepower and titanium everything. Trick motor, trick suspension, and a catastrophic price, like the RC30 and RC45 before it. Seriously, how successful were those 2 bikes (obviously the 30 had a longer run, but the 45 won championships as well. That's what I would buy if I could get a new blade. I don't want another massaged inline 4. I want the trickest bike on the street.

I need to start playing the lottery
