Absolutely love the look of this trike and if Honda could pull it off, would make it very tempting to trade up from my 08 Fuoco. It all depends of course on how the bike functions, but having local servicing alone would be a massive upgrade.

Yes I want one so badly.
Hope this will actually come to production(I don't think it will)

Looks awesome but I'd only get one if it was narrow enough to filter between lanes of traffic on roads and highway . (I'm in California where its legal). Unfortunately all the promotion photos are "cool" angle photos and none give an idea of over-all width or length.

If its as wide as the Yamaha Niken (or half of a Can-Am) then it wont fit between most traffic lanes which eliminates the primary benefit of motorcycle ownership in CA.

I would definitely check it out but it does look a little wide for my use. Plenty of pros though.

So busy and so many visual lines.

Everytime I look at these naked bikes all I can see is the hours and hours of detail work trying to keep all those exposed pieces clean. Living on a gravel road all that can be undone in one trip to town.

looks like a cool machine. power of the niken. but low center of gravity of a scooter. doubt USA would see it. if it finally goes to production. I have been seriously considering a silverwing powered mp3. my mp3 doesnt get much drive time since the arrival of my naked silverwing project. both bikes feel about the same in the heft department. but no comparison in the power delivery. the swing hits sooo much harder. far more than the specs 10hp difference suggests.

mp3 likes: comfort, handling, amazing brakes
silverwing: smooth, low center of gravity. amazing power

sure would like to combine the two
