    Sorry but I have to say it: ho-hum, Yet Another Blacked Out Bike. It looks just like the new Not-Rebel, Harley Street, and a host of others that have gone down this same YABOB played out road that is almost as old as the pants below the azz trend (and both are way overdue for ending the trend).

    On what...just the tank? Or are they going to be novel and extend that to at least one fender too? Again...ho-hum already done to death.

    P.S. $3K over the base scout that has a lot more material too. I guess less really IS more.

    Yeah, everybody's doing it. Young people seem to like it.

    =sales.

    That's what is important. Sales.

    I have no idea where you're getting the 3k over standard Scout price. According to my calculator, $11,499 minus $11,299 - $200. Perhaps you're diggin' up the price of the Scout 60 and comparing apples to oranges?

    Everyone has an opinion.

    Whoops...yeah, I looked at the smaller Scout for the difference. They all look the same until you read the specs.

    Yup. they all look the same - unless you're actually interested in them. At this point in my life Hondas, Kawasakis, Suzukis, and Yamahas hold no interest for me, along with Harley-Davidsons, so they all look the same ...

    No ... not really. Just most of them.

    Oh yeah, it's both fenders, not just one.

    Bronze matte, silver matte, red gloss, black matte or black gloss.

    Here ... some "other than black" examples.

    Honestly...aside from the Fury I can't fathom how the rest of Honda's cruiser line up can even be classified as cruisers.

    Seriously, aside from the DN-01 not being weird enough --- and yet another YABOB --- what the #### is this?!?

    OK, judging by those pics, I'm definitely not cool enough to ride a Scout.
