    The last time honda made something exotic it cost £150,000. Dread to think how much they think they can charge for an all new V4.

    True, Stevie. I've seen various 'versions'. But a man has to have dreams! It must come to fruition sooner or later, especially in light of the V4 trend set by Aprilia and Ducati - duly acknowledging that Honda actually started the 'trend' with the VF 750 back in 1983 (or more specifically, the NR 500 V4 Factory Race Bike in 1979.)

    However, I have my wallet ready and as soon as the official word is out, I'm there. Hopefully it won't be in that 'exotic' range of £150,000 that @CharlieR85 suggested.:(

    The word is it will have to be under 40k Euros for WSB homologation and it's rumoured as being readied for Honda's 70th anniversary in 2019. There are also a fair few bits that have now been spotted going through the patent process.

    Rumors, rumors. I went to my local Honda dealer today and enquired about it. They had no info at all. I was prepared to leave a 'first option' deposit, but they wouldn't even take my money:(.

    The dealers are the worst. I've been in a number of times and they've known nothing about new bikes, not even when it's been just colour changes. I told them last year that a replacement CB1000R was coming.

    You're right there df, the dealers always seem to be the last to know anything
