That was really cool! I went full screen to watch their so called video. it's actually just stills, but good close ups of the bike slideshow style.
I love the concept. I'll NEVER give up my dino burning version, but I say bring it! Technology. No fuel tank up high, batterys slung down low, big cooling fins behind the front tire??? to take care of cooling for whatever, it's bound to feel very different. I also love the side profile!! Yeah, looks retro/futuristic/cafe/liter. And I hear electric has gobs of torque.

Mmmmm, that front fender is tasty! Might buy a used front fender for my bike and do a mod. Little cutting, shaping, cleaning, painting...
Does anyone else think this idea might be cool for our RC51's?

Edit: or made of carbon fiber :)

Yeah, those front rotors look big, and I like the exposed front sprocket and chain look. Maybe could be safer depending on rpm's, but sure looks tough.

Those are better pics than what I saw a while back. I like the look, I just widh Big Red would spend some of that R&D energy and bucks on some much needed upgrades on some current stuff though. Been a while since we really had something to crow about on the showroom floor:eek:

Painted in old school Honda GP colors.
Would mind having one if they put an engine in it.
Otherwise I'll pass.

Looks good. Better then most of the new electric bikes i've seen. Looks like they got the brakes and suspension right too.

I'll be honest, i am not too crazy about the looks of the current CBR 1000RR.

Yeah thanks. The white and red really look good on the bike. Still breaking her in, but i really love the 675R so far. Can't wait till i can get on it a bit more.

Yeah, how you lik'n your new bike gts? I went and googled and that bike sounds really cool.
I like it a lot. The sound is great. The Triple has a nice sound. Kind of that Ferrari sound. Sporty but with a little grunt to it. Love the look and really love having a smaller bike again, especially with the Ohlins and Brembos. Makes getting around town and through the canyons really fun.
