the VTX1800 was a looser from the start.. but the surveys... years before the VTX ,said to make the VTX as it is. and HONDA Lost..
market changed FASTER then Honda could make a BIG New V-Twin... and NOT be a Harley twin.. like the VTX1300....
How I wish Honda came out with an updated VTX 1800 line. Heck I'd only ask for ABS, no need to refine the drive train lash. I'll take it as such.
I would literally be waiting outside the Honda dealership to pay money in hand. Quite possibly I'd wait out the first year and go for the second year model or maybe third year so Honda fine tunes any issues.
But a Honda VTX 1800 ABS would be a dream come true.
Last I read the new Yamaha 1900 isn't selling well due to its high price. The Kawasaki Vaquero sells for $17,000. I'm sure Honda could come out with a new VTX 1800 for 14k bucks.
But then I realize I'm in the minority of bikers or so the market hints. Just look at Motorcycle Cruiser magazine. They barely publish any new articles and they haven't reviewed a Japanese cruiser for years. Back in the day they use to eat and breath those comparison reviews with the Japanese cruisers. Nowadays half of their articles are about cafe racers.
this is the first time I made this public... anywhere..
