Whatever the final design is lets hope Honda does not skimp on offering fully adjustable suspension.

Yep, saw that too. Remember what we were talking about in CT? I said they would wedge that V5 into the VFR or a new Blackbird.

I still have a soft spot for the VFR, as it was my first bike. @#%$ Saturn drivers!

It is a pretty innovative idea to use the engine as a greater portion of the frame. It will be interesting to hear how it handles in comparison to a full frame and or a stressed member type setup.

I'm surprised it's not larger ... more like 1200 or 1300 to replace and improve upon the CBRXX.

Take a look. . .if it looks like this illustration, I'll definitely consider it. Then there's the RVF1000 with a V4 engine configuration, the CBR1000RR replacement!!

And, the RVF. . .
