    Looks interesting. Honda's designers have loosened up a bit. When will they be hitting the showroom floor's?

    Any video with less cow bell?

    I agree that it looks much better than in the originally released photo's. The curves are hard to pick up on film I suppose.

    I love the 1000rr in yellow. That would be my color choice!

    Yeah I love the bumblebee look...seriously. Very interesting what they have done to the nose with the shaping of the plastics. They obviously went through the design cues of all the other recent sportbikes and created a hybrid of the things that worked in them all. In my opinion it translates really well into this hybrid "best of" design.

    I take back previous comments I have made recently about Honda's corporatizing of their design. With this bike (and the recent changes to the 600RR) they have redeemed themselves in my books. Now what does the bike ride like? The big question.

    EDIT:

    Just had a look at Fish's/Bikeland's article and pics. Wow those colour schemes are great. Red and Silver is hot too. Black ain't too shabby either. However one must remember these photos are taken under "excellent" conditions. Have a look at the last photo. You will see the absolutely massive softbox lighting rig hanging overhead. Anything looks good under those babies. That said the bikes still look awesome. Well done Honda.
