Honda have done a complete new Fireblade and announced they will be taking world Superbike seriously next year they have already signed Baptiste as their no 1 rider.

Looks fast.
Hopefully Honda can also claw its way back to the senior TT,  after the 2017 SP jumping out of gear fiasco.
Looks like the "allnew" 2019 S1000RR is hard to beat, but lots of negative feedback, some customers apparently have to wait till 2020 for their bikes to be delivered. At first it was rumoured due to high demand = long wait times, but lots of sources saying there are issues to be sorted with the new bike. The more advanced the bikes become, the more downtime.

This one looks really good! traditionally HONDA's colour schemes have been upside down as if the person who designs the paint job gets dressed in the dark. This one however doesn't look to shabby! :thumleft:

I wonder what the row of 6 lights above the instrument cluster is for, if indeed they are lights. Makes one think of the RPM lights on a F1 steering wheel.

Yeah probably exactly that. Shifting lights. Would be pretty cool.

No one saw that coming. No big announcements or Teasers,

This is a very pretty machine, and while I am no Honda man, I have learnt to take them seriously if they announce plans to win some titles.

Yes there was one, a huuuuge one in fact..... them releasing the SP!
Same bike but for some fancy suspenders, it never made any sense to me.
Turns out that sold their excess bikes before they 'leaked' the new-bike announcement  ;)  - which sounds promising indeed, about bloody time too!
Who would have though eh, a Honda ruling the power stakes?
