Two marvels there Nigel


I especially like the NS.


If only Honda would decide to shake the waters a bit(these days).


By the way, have you tried the new CBR?

Thanks Nesca. NS is a nice 'small' bike that does carry some significant Honda history.

This could answer your Honda 'shaking the waters': https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocia...x-1000-concept

And yes, I have ridden the new CB1000R, courtesy of my local Honda dealer. Took me back to my CB750K1 days (1970) when naked bikes ruled. Of course the new CB delivers a wealth of power, handles good, and has all the electronic 'gimmickry' one could NEVER want. (For the average rider who doesn't do track days, one electronics are set there's no need to change them - my opinion only). The new CB would fare well as a tourer as well as commuter, but I would never be a candidate to purchase one, for I am sports bike through and through. My only complaint, and one shared by many, is that I wish manufacturers, MV included, would trash the ridiculous looking floating rear guard (fender) tail light assembly.

I heard many good things about it's handling(CBR), SP version. I have the chance to try the SP2 version, courtesy of a friend, on track soon. Lets see...


But a new six-cylinder?!
I truly hope so. I will be in line to get one. I love 'feeling' different engines(and I wasn't around the CBX years).

I have a 2018 SP2 and the handling is brilliant. Feels like a much smaller bike because of its low weight. I think the forged Marchesini wheels aid the flickability, a feeling many MV owners will be accustomed to. I'm sure you will enjoy it. Overall, it's a great bike.

However, many will say that there's better contenders in that price bracket. All comes down to personal preference.

The technology being fitted to modern bikes is truly amazing now. The semi active suspension on my Aprilia Caponord was superb. It does seem to be that the electronics on both bike and cars are making mechanics into computer programmers or computer analysts. Good thing or bad thing? Well, I'm not sure any more. Up until recently I thought it shut out the home mechanic and made you take your bike to the dealership as soon as a dreaded yellow light appears on the dash, but the stuff that my latest bike has on offer to the rider, wheelie control, launch control etc etc. is brilliant when you get your head around it and of course all the other manufacturers are doing it too. MV, Honda, etc. etc. That 6 cylinder concept bike does look interesting though.

Was at this years Festival of a Thousand Bikes at Mallory park and one of these rare Honda's was there.

Much more impressive in the flesh than in the magazine articles.

Nice pics @JDS. You might know, but for others' benefit, that road-legal MotoGP version is 68,000 UK pounds worth.

Would look good in my collection, but how would one justify the cost. I think the money would be safer with a RC30 or 45, OR, a Vincent HRD.

Nigel.

A new Honda RC213V-S recently sold in the UK for £200+K.. They actually don't have a lot of power ( compared to something like the Ducati Superleggera) but they have an incredible power to weight ratio.

I know a guy with an unregistered NR750 for sale, if you happen to have about £100k burning a hole in your back pocket!
