From what I know its a Stateline based custom. I wish I had better pics of the thing. The other 2 where cool but not my style

Had a stereo/GPS in it that was insane. The poster behind it said something like 500watts and a 10" subwoofer. It also said this is was completely stock frame? Could this even be true?

That's definitely the stock frame for the VT line, I think Honda would've had a heck of a run with a cruiser/bagger design like that. When I saw that tail end, I also thought, Victory.

Cant say I'd buy one right off the bat, not knowing how much they are. I think that would be a great bike at $12-$14k.. Anything over $14k I would hesitate.

But it is nice to see that, at least, they're thinking about the Fairing/Hardbags/Cruiser side of things.

I'd gladly take it off of Honda's hands - great lines!

Would love to go that route. As stated, the rear looks like a Victory but I like the looks of them as well.

That design is so advanced looking, i'm thinking it belongs to Batman! However, as i said before, if it performed like a Honda, i'd probably buy one. and why not?:D

I'd like to see it out of the cage and with some paint on it.
I'd like to see it out of the cage...and in my garage!!! :icon_drib

I don't normally care for the satin black, or the fairing/bagger look, but that is quite appealing to me. I think I need one. :)

It is what it is!!!!

Facts are facts,,,

Want a V-Twin with hard bags and a shield???

Just about any major MFG can set ya up with one right off the showroom floor,,,

Except Honda.

Evidently, such a bike like that is still considered CONCEPT in Japan,,,, (WTF!!??!!??)

Honda's been too busy with it'd automatic transmissions and sub 150 cc scooters to worry about things like that!,,,,

IMHO, Honda does NOT have a CLUE regarding which direction to take with their 'big' (???) V-twins.

Let's look at history,,, The chopper fad is well on it's way out, and we were blessed with the Fury,,, :confused:

Oh, almost forgot, what about one of the last Honda "Concept's" we saw, the EVO 6??? :confused:

Who's gonna drop their X for THAT?

Is ANYBODY at HONDA in touch with the American V-Twin Cruiser market???

I just don't see it,,,,

Same way with their cars,,, Wifes had many Honda's most of her life and we looked at a 2011 Accord to replace her 02 Accord. Even today, the styling is 'rather bland', and the 'optional' V-6 version sucks wind when it comes to performance. :spank:

Honda, it's wake up time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :banghead:
