    Agree - I am on my fourth Blade now - I've not seen anything in the teaser videos that makes me want to buy another! They would be better off not bothering and just releasing the info.

    So what we know so far!

    Led headlamps
    Inline 4 engine
    Old generation forks
    Marmite looks
    Looks quite small
    Frame and swing arm look the same as older blade

    Wonder how much a marketing team got paid for it?

    Why are we looking through a letterbox on all the Teaser videos?! Is that so we can't see that is still has Combined ABS? ;)

    The Blade sounds rough on that last video - must be down on power compared to previous video ;)

    Yes, I thought that.

    About 3.8 bhp if I'm not mistaken on idle.

    But it was a Red one, I guess the one on the other vids was a Repsol, as we all know they are quicker :D:p;)

    I thought black was a test mule colour so that will be the one with all the faults and rough edges

    As it goes around bends there is some form of steering.
    Unless the camera is stabilised the wheels are round.


    Sorry Mr Honda but these snippets are pointless. As for the Total Control gumpf I'm sorry to point out that a large number of the demographic you normally sell Blades too may remember it from a previous use.

    I'm not expecting much tomorrow to be perfectly honest!

    Crap teaser videos, photos of what looks like an old blade in new clothing and no chassis or fork updates

    At least Yamaha and Kawasaki have had the balls to do total updates over the last couple of years

    Even suzuki's offering, engine and forks aside isn't a great shake up

    I'm looking forward to the unveiling. According to a post on Facebook two new models will be revealed live from 14:30 UK time.
    I'll either love it or hate it I think.

    I'm thinking I'm either gonna end up with the new blade or the current RSV4 RF.

    Either way I'm sure the Blade is going to be a cracking bike. Let's just hope it lives up to the hype
