Said with about as much soul and feeling as a road accident.

They didn't even use the new bike. That video was really sad. How does anyone get excited about a Honda bike that isn't a Grom or an RC213V-S?

So what modern bike is easy to 'tune up' manually. They all have electronically controlled fuel injection - no carbs to foul up by customer - and electronic ignition. They can be remapped, providing you have comprehensive knowledge of the ECU, and that's about it. And that has been the case for many years, from superbikes right down to little scooters.

I am fascinated about the wireless technology on your bike though. Does it allow you to tweet while cruising the motorway or can you send it off on its own to do a journey by itself?

Marc and Ped can read scripts and act well. But it’s a shame that everyone know honda does not implement anything they learn from track on to street bikes. It’s the same age old CBR1000RR and even the 2017 model is same except for electronics, faring and a modified swing arm with frame weight reduction.

@V46R they always were the days when one was young, had a line of credit, the belly was not flapping out yet, hair stayed on the head and there was an interest from the opposite sex. Regardless of era!

Just bought a new blade, it’s brilliant. Read all the reviews, everyone agrees
