    If these are valid pictures...

    ..did they redesign the engine? Looks like it sits higher.

    All the rumors say it's a new bigger power plant and transmission. Also the bike is supposed to be significantly lighter

    They'll need the displacement of any new engine to be bigger than the Triumph Rocket III to regain touring crown, as well as all the greatest new electronics in the cockpit.
    Not sure I'm ready for an automatic tranny.

    Looks like there will be both. The blue one has a clutch lever while the others don't.

    Hey, here's a thought:

    The seats on the F6b and the Wing look very very similar. Maybe the trunk is removable! Probably not, but maybe ...

    That steering Head/Stem/Triple Tree or whatever you want to call it... looks massive.

    Radiators looks to be a little further back and angled...

    It does look massive indeed. Similar front suspension to the Beemer Telelever. Frame looks close to the current year and I like the wheels.

    Up the HP and Torque, add 6th gear, keep a manual, bring out a Valkyrie and I would have my next "cruiser".

    I wondered if they have the radiators pulled back so that we could see the front suspension. They are so wide open that I don't see how the plastic will fit.

    And yes, that front end is massive looking.

    2ltr or 2.2ltr?

    I'm reeling in my gear now!

    I hope so! That is high on my list. I'd love to switch between full wing and F6B with ease.

    I had the same thought.

    As long as it still keeps the rider relatively dry while riding in the rain.

    More power is always welcome.

    Better brakes would be nice. A 6th gear would be really nice.

    Looks pretty cool. Would like to see one in person.

    ABS, better bags, & easier on the knees. I can do without all the infotainment crap, it's a distraction unless it's locked out while moving.

    Will, if you look at the bottom of engine these bikes no longer have the facia around the exhaust
    where it exits the engine. Maybe that's why it my appear higher.
    The facia gives the lower look.
    Also no shifter on gray bike, there is on blue bike,, looks to be going way of auto transmission

    Maybe the Wing will be the auto, and the F6B the manual. I'd go for that option............

    The Honda boys over there should have contacted Steve and the FORUM for our input on this design, do a poll like next years rally, tally up the results, and make the damn thing.....speculation negated.

    One other nice option would be maybe 25 or so special paint colors from the factory besides black, red, gray and white. I'd go with Lamborghini Orange.

    Wonder what Traxxion Dynamics would do with that new front suspension? Probably a new shock?

    Yamahonda? Looks like they had some "blue" designers working on that one.

    If that were true, I'd be telling my wife, "You know, universities are overrated. The kids can get an excellent education through McDonald's mentor program."
