Honda Goldwing F6B

Obviously, this isn't a Victory thread, but since it's pretty obvious where Honda is aiming this one, what do you guys think?

Just watched a you tube video on it. I like the looks of it. I guess that's why I bought a black xc.

If the XC was built like this, I'd own it. I like it.

Ride safe.

I like the look, but the all black thing is so boring. The cost of styling is a complete waste as the bike just looks like a little black lump from a short distance.

No ABS? What century are the Japanese living in now?

Personally, a trunk is one of my favorite features on a bike and my wife would far prefer a luxurious backrest to the butt stop offering, but for a solo rider who is more interested in form than function, this certainly was a successful debut. It's design is about as nice as any bagger out there to my eye anyway.

I find it interesting that Victory dropped the street Vision for a touring bike only and Honda just went in the opposite direction.
