I've been waiting for this moment like FOREVER! Firstly - this is the UK 2007 model. NO IDEA whether it will ever be released in Australia. http://www.honda.co.uk/performanceArt/ Things about it I like: ABS Brakes - it's an optional extra I'd pay for! rectangular mirrors - yes!!!! Black engine - nothing says TOUGH quite like it those headers - look unreal! Colour choices - that gold is amazing fuel injection - EUREKA! Things I don't like: The fact it looks like a cross between the ER6 & the SV650 It really doesn't resemble a hornet anymore that exhaust pipe is HIDEOUS!! The instrument panel is a bit...wierd. Overall yes I like it. Obviously Honda thought it was time to move on from the "retro" look of the round headlight & make a different looking bike. They want to compete with Kwaka & Suzi & thought this was the best way. Would I sell my hornet to buy this one? NO WAY! Mine looks much better :grin: I couldn't afford one new anyway so I'm still happy I got a 1998 one & blinged it up. If I was to ever crash my bike, yes I'd probably get a brand new one & change a few things - starting with that pipe, UGH! Seriously, I'd change a few things if I got one to make it more my style. The technological advances are good but I just prefer the old look. maybe I'm old. But if I had the chance to test ride one I sure would! I really hope they bring this out in Oz cause we need more mid class bike choices.
