It seems certain that the VFR 800 will continue into next year unchanged. The CBR 600 and 1000 RRs have also been announced for 2008, but what of the Blackbird? Has anyone heard anything about a new model? ...or are they discontinuing the blackbird all together? I'm guessing it's probably the latter, as they have really dropped the price on the '07 'birds. I've started to seriously look at purchasing a new bike, but with uncertainty regarding work at the moment, I'm not in a secure enough position to make any moves - yet. I'm after a comfortable sports/tourer, and for the next couple of months at least, secure storage of a bike is my main hurdle. (I live in a flat, and would have to park the bike in public areas) The blackbird is current at the top of my list at the moment, and has been for a while. I've looked around at many others; however none seem to warrant serious consideration. Also, with the current price of a new 'bird, it makes for an offer almost too good to pass up. :? If there was going to be a 2008 blackbird, I would not be in such a rush to buy. Are there any suggestions as to what to do in this situation?
