Honda concept (CB900F homage)
« on: March 29, 2020, 07:08:20 pm »
So, Honda have revealed (online) a concept based on the old 900F models.
Think they used the current Cb1000R as a base.
Wonder if this will go into production.

Ja, dit kan werk. Beslis ja.
Dit herinner my aan my kortstondige verhouding wat ek met 'n CB750FII gehad hettydens my studente jare. 
Soos om verlief te raak op 'n prostituut...sy ry so lekker, maar jy weet voor jou siel dit gaan nie uitwerk nie.

Glad nie n fan van die CB's nie, maar die konsep, as dit onveranderd bly, is goed. Dis nader aan die oorspronklike 750F as wat Kawa se z900rs aan die Z1 is.

Agreed Dan, assuming my translation is right, my step brother sold his 850 JPS Commando to buy the 900F, he hardly rode it never came to terms with the handling, my GS750 Suzuki gave them a hard time, a lack of self preservation is worth 15hp.  :biggrin:

My 900F was one of my best handling bikes but a bit slow.
My GPZ 1100 B1 had two of them I really loved . Crap handling but very exciting point and squirt bikes. Real hooligan tools
As time washes by, our footprints are all for naught

My references of that period, were all on twisty Welsh back roads, probably not suited to the 900F.  :thumleft: That GPZ, it wasn't one of the first FI ones that used to twist their cranks was it?  :biggrin:

Hulle maak die nostalgie nogals duur.

Die nuwe retro bikes het beslis nie retro price tags nie.   :(

Ja nee, kyk, die goed is duur. Ek sou nogal nie omgee vir n R5000 Katana 1100 nie.

A friend of mine twisted a crank on a Z1000ST, but I haven't heard of others doing it?

Honda following Kawa and Suzuki for a slice of the faux retro cake market.Side profile reminds me a lot of the oddly named Honda Zephyr of the mid nineties.

Really abused mine engine wise. I eventually believed those engines cannot be killed. I severely over revved mine in a wheelie one night drunk and  stripped the bolts out of the head holding the cam block (forgot what was its name ) a few millimeter.Fixed myself with helicoils and never had trouble from it again. A friend with a few years later model GPZ1100  twisted the hub clean off in the left housing while downgearing in bloemfontein

Those GS 750's were a thorn in many a Bikes Metal, in good Hands they gave a Kawa 900 a Run for their Money. It was my first
"Superbike" and I owned the first one in South West, if that counts for anything. ::)
I like the looks of that Honda, the Tail is typical Honda and Classic, :thumleft:
