Over at Motorcycle Daily there have been a bunch of interesting rumours posted lately. I guess it's been a slow week for motorcycle news. In any case, I thought this was worth posting. Would you buy a V3 or V5 sportbike? I hope that Honda builds it if for no other reason than to have something different.
Does Honda Plan to be Different?
By Dirck Edge, October 15 2004
One way to differentiate yourself from the competition is to design and manufacture a motorcycle with an engine configuration no one else offers. This is hard to do these days, with v-twins, inline three-cylinder machines. If the rumors are correct, however, Honda has some entirely new production machinery up its sleeve.
Will Honda manufacture motorcycles with v-5 engines? Mimicking its MotoGP weapon? Will it manufacture a v-3 engined bike? There are rumors to support both of these scenarios, and more.
Of course, for Honda, this was a relatively quiet year. Very few new models were introduced. Could this be the calm before the new product storm? We wouldn't doubt it.
