    I stumbled upon this "news" in various articles:

    https://young-machine.com/2018/06/09/10277/

    https://auto.ndtv.com/news/honda-cbr1000rr-with-v4-powertrain-could-arrive-in-2019-1851821

    http://www.bikesrepublic.com/featured/2019-honda-cbr1000rr-will-run-v4-engine/

    Now these are all "hearsay" and nothingconfirmed by Honda (yet), and this rumor pops up again and again here and there.

    But because Honda has officially registered a few V4-patens like 1-2 years ago and the latest new V4 was the 12oo one, I think this time we might get it.

    What are your thoughts on that matter? :D

    (I haven't found an older thread covering this topic, so I thought I'd give it a shot and post a new thread, I hope it's ok)

    Yeah, but, maybe... the 13th time's a charm, I guess?

    But we can dream and hope. The Aprillia and now the Duc have been succesful.

    Kind of, but this one is different because they are suggesting it's the CBR1000RR that will be getting the V4 - I don't recall seeing that rumor before. Also, the story is from a Japanese language publication, not the usual runofthemill internet rumor site.

    I believe in miracles! :D

    Honda should be able to do at least as good at reliability.
    But can they make it as sexy as the Italian supermodels?

    Well I think when they came out with the 06 and 07 Cbr that was the best looking years. Then in 08 it got a fugly nose. But even that grew on me. The RSV4 and new Ducati are beautiful Bikes. I kind of like the Ape better. Followed a friend with the RSV4 at Barber on a bunch of laps. Full Akra titanium system on a well tuned bike. Music to your ears. I have really liked some of the concept drawings of the potential new Honda but who knows if that is what Honda would design.

    that was exactly my train of thought :D

    I was hoping for a core-truth since the first time the "rumor" appeared was on a japanese website, too.

    Think Scotland have a better chance of winning the World Cup.
