  3. Talked to my local Honda dealer today, he said mid-June and $15,600+ORC
  4. It's up on the Honda Australia web-site now.....

  6. I had a look at one in person yesterday, man, does it look beautiful! And the quality of fit and finish on the bike, it is absolutely first class. Honda really did hit the mark this time around.
  7. Looking at it side by side with the old model it's noticeably slimmer.

Only negatives - traction control switch looks tacked on like an afterthought ; and being picky , the remote preload adjuster knob positioned on the left hand side behind the pillion footrest , but above the chain , could end up getting covered in chain lube fling.
