I'm happy to hear that the new 500s look good in the flesh, they already looked good in the photos. Didn't expect that for such a low price.nikster;286168 wrote: Admittedly they're lacking a new exciting model like a Panigale ... but I guess sales figures speak their own language.
Maybe Honda is lacking something like a Panigale, but there are lots of superbikes available - for a price.
Honda read the market right by offering two super-cheap 250 singles and now the more than fair-priced 500s.
At a time when most companies are stagnating, Honda can't build them fast enough and is pulling thousands of new riders into the fold. Smart move!
What's next? How about something between 24 and 47 hp? Maybe a sexy 400cc supermoto with 35 horses?
That would interest me more than another superbike I couldn't afford.
