My favorite part is a guy in jeans and a long sleeve T wearing racing boots, gauntlet gloves, and an Arai helmet. For some reason I just thought that was funny. I can't decide if I like that exhaust or not. It looks kinda cool, yet it's HUGE!

Press Any Key To Continue.

New VFR? Guessing ...

What do they do, put the smallest asian guy they can find on it to make it look huge? What's that guy weight? About as much as my left leg?

I like the looks of the bike.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

i think what honda really needs is a v4 naked bike with big usd forks. kinda like a cbr1000 except with a v4, some comfortable bars, and naked. keep it clean like the 919 and it will sell.

The exhaust looks like another one of those multi-chambered jobs, like the CBR1000RR has, that allows for a extremely wide powerband.

Right now, the front of the machine is, well, fugly I guess is the term I was looking for.

It will take a lot of motor to make up for that ugly.

There are a few naked st1300s out there. They are heavy but otherwise fit some of that bil.

Looks like a BMW to me. I was excited until I realized it's just another VFR. Call me when the CBR1000RRv4 shows up.

They're talking like it'll be a multiple platform bike, Sport/Sport Touring/Naked-Standard just by adding or subtracting bodywork and changing tune levels.
There more "finished" pics on VFRD.com
Should be interesting

Bingo. A 1200cc V-4 VFR would make way too much sense and logic and appeal in the US for Honda to offer it to us.

Everything about that bike is ugly. I'd rather ride a B-King.

Hopefully they do bring back a line a of V-4 powered bikes, Honda has a strong Heritage with the V-4's and They are sweet motors, add an exhaust can and that bike above aint bad at all.

I would like to see the Interceptor going back a little more in the smaller, sportier direction, If they want to make it 1200 CC's and larger they should call it a Blackbird IMO.

Oh, I like that bike. I might have to give one serious consideration come springtime. I think it would fit certain criteria quite well.

I know it's a great motorcycle, I even thought it looked pretty good design wise. I went to the dealer to check it out, in person it looks like Jimmy Durante

They had one at last years motorcycle show in Chicago. It's not that homely.

A little funny looking, but the power will make up for that.
