That's got to be the most UNexciting new model... Black? How'd the engineering dept come up with that one?
well, I like black, but you are right, it's a very unexciting new bike. I suppose we should all be happy it's there...
7 yrs running... that's a good stretch for a bike virtually unchanged...
Looks Like the same bike, just in black.
least they changed the color .. look at the ST1300 and 08 loosk as the 09 ....
LOL! After all the crap - its still the carryover bike. whoop te doo.... yawn.....
you know what I found interesting is that they added a CBR 1000 with ABS to the lineup. That wasn't there before was it? Isn't that unusual for an all out sportbike?
uh.....that's because it is.
Look at the DN-01 - jeez they must be smoking some fine canabis.

Gawd thats awefull ugly.
I have been reading about that, I'll sideline my normal bias till I see what the motorags have to say about it. It is strange for a sportbike. I hope its not the ususal Corp Honda trying to protect us from ourselves.
With this years line up, Honda has cemented itself in 4th place of the japanese manufacturers, and with the DN-01 is becoming laughable.:unsure:
Scooter/Sport bike ????
Actually I am mistaken... I looked at the specifications of the '09 and compared it to the '08. I noticed this difference:
Ah, yes, it truly is new and improved!!
Looking for diffrences.
seems the comparison is all messed up for formating....
PGM-FI with automatic enricher circuit, 36mm throttle bodies, and 12-hole injectors
PGM-FI with automatic enricher circuit,
Unsure what the 08 is, it may be the same.
11 pounds lighet compared to the ABS
So nothing really new?
What a let down!
THAT'S IT!!!!???? Wow, after all that hype....
I put a short write-up on the 2009 ABS brakes:
Honda claims the new ABS is a safety thing. But they fully concede that if you don't want it, you don't have to have it.
No V5! No 1000cc! No funny pictures with extra exhaust! Does this mean one more year of baloney future VFR posts?!?
Honda is just putting more and more nails in the coffin (for bikes) each year.....all that technology, engineering resources, and money available.....what a joke.
Wow no surprise really. Honda will have to work pretty hard to get any of my money in the future.
