Re: Honda RUNE
Screw everything else this is the statement right here for us sportbike riders...
'In other words, the Rune may be most significant because of what it says about Honda, as a whole. A company that has been criticized for being too conservative, and occasionally following product trends, when it should have been leading, may be reinventing itself. Honda product introductions over the next few years will tell us if this is really the case, but the Rune is a pretty solid, 769.6 pound indication that it is.'
That means a V5 will be coming and some radical changes to Honda's lineup might be in store. With their quality, attention to detail, and reliability, well, if they start making Sportbikes applying this philosophy it's all the way on my friends. Myself and the VFR guys have been clammering at the heels and foaming at the mouth for a 450-475 lb (fully fueled) VFR with 120 HP at the back wheel for 5 years!
