VTX1800 CoverUp

Sadly, it is chain driven. Bet this thing would have cost a pretty penny.

I had to lighten the 3rd pic(see attachment) so I could see the final drive.
Man! I can't stop looking at it.

Not VTX, that is the flat 6 engine of the Goldwing and the model for the F6

Well! It's got my wheels on it. And even thought it is the EVO 6, I want it to be vtx1800.

MOTO FORMULA

If you think current, you are wrong. The Honda Evo 6 dates back to 2007 , when the Japanese brand introduced it at the Tokyo Motor Show. In these five years, Honda has established itself at the forefront of motorbikes with automatic engine and the Evo 6 was framed in the beginning of this strategy. It carries the HFT system that was marketed in series with the DN-01, a development that led to the double-clutch system that now dominates the Honda range with the VFR1200 F, Crosstourer and NC series.

Honda has not yet experimented with this solution in any maxinaked or custom model, so they could well retake the Evo 6 concept in upcoming dates as a replica to models such as the Yamaha VMAX or Ducati Diavel .

It's a young man's bike for sure, but I like the looks. It looks very European, doesn't it? I don't know what makes me say that, but somehow it does.

In the 2013 article I took the quote from, Spain was supposed to produce a version of the EVO 6 but never did. I really like the exhaust design.

I don't see why they couldn't make an 'old man' version of this bike for you old guys... fatter seat and bring the pegs forward, you'd be good to go then. I figure the gas mileage would be similar to what we are getting now. Heck! With a helmet and cool glasses, no one would know you were old unless you ride it only @ 50 mph.
