New Hondas

Wow. Just checked out new bikes from Honda, they’re all ugly. My opinion.

It's not the speed....it's that sudden stop.

Black has definitely become the new chrome, Evidently the newer generations of riders find chrome repulsive..

What caught my eye on their website was the model year being presented, in the case of the CTX1300 they're offering 2014 models and the ST1300 it's 2012 models. Maybe it's a corporate "typo", i doubt it.

Those model years are left over. They never sold. I wonder why ?

I do like the CB1100ex models, they remind me of my old 1969 CB750 back in the day. Although I am spoiled riding my VTX1300S for many years now, it would be hard to go back to a "up-right" riding position.
Nice retro style looking bike for around the town.
