Has everyone seen this yet?


They went to side exhaust and dropped the aggressive front end for a more IMO Ducati look. New engine and chassis, and check the weight...439! (51 pounds heavier than last years model) Are they crazy? I know Honda has been a strong competitor for a long time and they usually have good ideas but I'm lost on this one. I saw one in person the other day and I think its ugly but thats just an one opinion...I just can't see how this thing is going to compete with the R1.

Sorry dude but that bike doesn't excite me
Me neither thats my point. I think Honda is taking a wrong turn, but stranger things have happened.
hideous looking...looks like a ducati front end that they simply smushed back
Ill be the first to say that I love it!
Wow...definitely not what i was expecting

Its ugly!
I have seen that bike in person and I must say I am not a fan.
I'd rock one... I'll put money down that it wins more than one literbike shootout this year...
I'm not a fan of the look, but I'm sure it runs nice. :D
i saw one in person the other day too. ugliest thing i've ever seen.
Not bad looking it totally has the ducati looking head lights. I really like the rear end It look very clean even stock!
I'm not a fan of the look either...
im with tpayne
They could have been smoother on the exhaust. It looks like a hockey stick from the side. Its a big L shape....UGLY :throwup

that is an ugly bike. i really hope that performance compensates for the looks. and honestly it is not even close to looking like a ducati. ducatis are hot; this is not hot. in my humble apinion i think that honda could have done better.
I wonder it got heavier?! If they went with the side-GP style vs. the undertail....that should have saved a few pounds. Plus the 600rr style fairing was suppose to also save weight.
Yea, the 07 is a really nice bike. I can vouch for that. Apparently the 08 HRC and Corona bikes are putting down some pretty hefty competition at the tracks.
