This is really great news. I have known for about the last year about this bike but never thought they would have it at the dealerships. Most all of the major Honda Dealers Here in Southern CA are taking deposits on it. IMHO this is even more track worthy than the Yamaha R1. With equal riders on board this is going to be the bike to beat. Honda has really been struggling since the days of the Repsol limited bikes of the past.

What is really cool is how the tail and non essential crap can be quickly removed for the track. This is going to be a limited edition so anyone who is serious about it needs to get the deposits down now. I'm pretty sure only the single brand dealerships will have availability on this bike. It should be hitting the floors here around May or so.

….This is going to be a limited edition....
So, what you're telling me....is that Honda took a track/race bike....put some bolt on/off lights, and license plate holder....call it a street bike....and likely put a HUGE price tag on it? I'm am totally biased, but, to me that tells me how good that the R1 must be....if Honda has to go to this extent to beat a regular production bike.

For years the R1 has alway been a track bike with quick release hardware. I'm not sure what the price will be but I'm sure it's going to be around the same range as the new R1. And yes Honda has their work cut out for them with this bike. Let's face it, Yamaha is going to be a competitive bike. Even if Marc Márquez was #1 in Moto GP last year (on a Honda).

This is an exciting year for the super bikes!!

My litre bikes have been R1's. Never really a HRC guy. Great bikes, dont get me wrong..... But theyve always been too overdone.... Zero character, more like a appliance IMHO. Some exceptions IE early 90s VFR's and the last gen VFR RC 51... Sex on wheels, looks and sound!!! Still dig the CBR 900 also, but different level. 93 almost grabbed the CBR 900, but the other hot bike of 93, the ZX 7 won me out by super slim margins (only bike I still regret selling in 04 after 11 yrs of being a perfect bike)

Everything else from em...... Nah..... All current litrebikes are waaaaayyy beyond capabilities.... The R1 with that crank..... Like a Duc on steroids.... Only Jap full bodied litrebike that does it for me nowadays. Looks wicked, sounds sex and waaaaaay more capable then necessary!! I'd rather take a little sexiness in my litrebikes vs Honda refinement (stale), even if its a 1/10 th slower in the mags and smilin like a mofo wheeling thru the bottom 1/2 of the speedo. Just me a loooong time crotchrocket guy....

Honestly, nowadays my 4th bike will be a dry clutch monster. Im kinda done with full plastic and no compromise superbikes.

Be still my heart..... Dammmnnnn I wish I could go back to my heydays 90's..... Yummy.... Some eye candy for the old guys....

Still gonna have to tape, safety wire, drain and the usual stuffs. I can attest that track bike CBR would absolutely NOT make this old guy any faster then being on a production R1.

I wouldn't fit on ANY of them. That's one of the reasons I still have my ol' FJ, and love my Tenere. And, without bias, the R1m is the sexiest. The Ducati 916 was the first bike that I ever thought was sexy. My legs wouldn't fit the tank indentations though. :oops:

I spoke with Honda at IMS, also poked around the net. From what I can gather (not that this accurate)

$26K ‘ish Probably before freight and prep, LOL

I’m NOT interested in it, but I definitely appreciate the technology and engineering. It’s very cool looking motorcycle. Very impressed.

I was also talking with sport bike “experts” at IMS and several people said this is now putting out about 215 hp at the crank. If that is sort of accurate, that is nutty for the ‘everyday’ rider. LOL

I’m thinking, when it’s all said and done, these will ride off the lot for $30,000 a copy. My guess.

Can’t wait to see how it handles fire trails and mud....... ;)
Well Sjaak Lucassen did a 155,000 mile world tour on an R1 in full leathers:

The tires did not do so well:

The HP that some of these bikes are putting out is sickening. Both the Ducati Enduro and KTM 1190 I rode were way too much bike for me. The Ducati accelerated from 45mph to almost 100mph in an instant even with nanny modes turned on. I can't imagine what these liter track bikes can do.

Went to my Yamaha dealer a couple years ago with a friend who wanted to ride a Ténéré. I took a big KTM just to go with him. He took off semi fast. I took off what I thought would be medium on my Ténéré and pulled a full wheelie! Shocked me as unless I am jumping something I keep both tires planted!
