919?

What is the proper way to say it? Nine one nine or Nine nineteen? Thanks.

Always say nine one nine cause if you say nine nineteen that could be confused with the time or date.

I was part of a focus group at American Honda a couple of years ago and the marketing / consumer research guys at Honda called it a nine nineteen.

I call mine Veronica. She prefers it that way.

If using numbers, I typically say nine nineteen. I've know to call it a nine one nine, but that just takes too long to say.

Press Any Key To Continue.

9-19 sounds awkward, so I say 9-1-9 or "the niner" if I have to refer to it in some way other than "my motorcycle." I can't call it "the Honda" because my brother has a 9-2-9, which is said 9-2-9, not 9-29... maybe that's why I say 9-1-9, since that's the way the 929 and 954 get named. YMMV.

Who are you to say it's outlandish? Its a fact & I have proof as does anyone with a 2002 brochure. Why bother to post it though if its just "outlandish"? I think Honda knows what its called.

The OP wanted to know so I told him. You can call yours whatever outlandish thing you want.

The 919 is pretty much an open book – what you see is what you’re going to get. All muscle. No fat. Even its name (say Nine-One-Nine). Think you can handle that?
Right from the Horses' mouth. Honda says to say Nine-One-Nine.

Pshaw! That's marketing rhetoric written up by some mook who may have ridden a motorcycle once...it's written to entice a certain demographic.

It's still 9-nineteen to me!

Hornet 900 in New Zealand (and Australia, England etc - pretty sure it was only the USA that got the 919 name due to the Hornet name being owned by the car). Or on the registration papers CB900F.

I do feel like Hornet 900 is short changing me 19cc though! Those extra 19cc equate to at least an extra half inch of penis lenght in bragging rights.
