+1, just on the off chance that I need to add a Honda Supermotard to the garage.

What about the new 600? This is suppossed to be "our" year for a new model. New exhaust, slipper clutch, steering damper, master cyclinder, lighter wheels, bla, bla, bla...

If it's anything like the new R6, I'll place my order in February.

Pass it on.

Looks that way. Some new colors, a revamped 600RR and that's the highlights. I know a lot of the sport tourer folks were hoping for an updated ST13 to better compete with the upgraded Yamaha FJR and Kawasaki ZZR1200. Looks like it wasn't meant to be this year

Yeah, the 6'rr is the only big announcement...
Like the "old" color scheme on the VFR.

The 9er shows the same paint color as last year.
The new paint scheme on the VFR does look nice H.

Two things I find interesting, and they may change as the days pass:
The '05 Superhawk is still listed. I guess they still got some?
The 9er had two links, but both went to the same bike.

nothing yet on the f4i, 599, RC & superhawk...
I can't imagine they're doing away w/ 599. ...the RC, f4i & superhawk, well that's another story.

Actually, I don't think the 599 gets many US sales. The 919 seems to be a much bigger hit for Honda, and they don't sell a whole lot of those, either. I wouldn't be too surprised to see them stop selling it in the US.

Maybe the new aggressive looks of the 599 will change that. I've been told by my Honda dealer that it's the most popular bike in Europe. If they give the 919 a similar, more aggressive facelift, hopefully it will also fair better in the US market.

If the 599 has the looks of the spy photos, I would definitely buy one. I love the aggressive street fighter look.
