The Honda FB6 has plenty of storage, without the top box, the Vision's storage is very limited. If one just wants to use the bike around town, the Vision's top box can always be removed. But if one just wants a bike for around town, why buy something as massive as a bagger anyway?

Thanks, I'm aware (though would prefer the yellow or blue). I was just commenting on the photo in question. Anywho, the contrasting color enhances the styling considerably IMHO.

They should change the name to F68. The age you would start riding this. A Lazyboy on wheels 2 or Another Accord without doors 2. Just a few names for this. Like the goldwing, doesn't look like a motorcycle. Sure it will be reliable thou

Best looking Wing I have ever seen... And they are great bikes to ride--very balanced... However, I don't fit on one very well 6'4", 34" inseam so I'll probably never own one!

That is a nice bike. I love the Wing engine, but not the Wing. I can almost see myself on it, but my next bike will probably be a XC Tour.

Here's a word- Rune.

I do not know a thing about the genesis of the F6B but I do know the
Rune was developed by an American team as part of an effort to demonstrate to Honda Japan what an American cruiser sporting the factory 6 can be.

I have got to believe that the F6B is the Japanese design team response to their bumpkin cousins as to what an American cruiser should be. Maybe they did focus groups.

It is thin pickings to find a pix of the tail of the F6B (catchy name by the way). There's a good reason for that. Not Takanobu Ito's design teams best effort for sure.

For 20 large you don't get the luxury of self cancelling turn signals. That exclusive option comes with the heated grips and backrest for another grand.

I thought that Honda was going to have a hard time topping the Rune. I didn't think that they would just give up and strip a Wing.
