It's too street oriented for my tastes, but it is a darn nice looking bike!

Yes, I like it. I would suspect more than I can afford.

It's amazing how Honda made it look even older and more outdated.

Now...that Goldwing F6 looks pretty enticing!

Ya know i like retro bikes in general (or I wouldn't own two HDs and a 79 BMW) but the air cooled inline four era was one i was glad to leave behind. They definitely got the look right down to the cheap looking Comstar wheel knock offs.
On the other hand you can get that naked streetfighter 1000 of theirs for virutally the same money with aluminum frame, single sided swingarm and about every state of the art sport bike feature. HMM.
I guess on the other hand its not much different than buying a top of the line Bonneville for about the same as a Street Triple would cost, just a matter of what you want.
I do think the 500 will be a good seller in its various guises. Strikes me as a good thing for beginners priced as it is. I'm not a beginner and have no desire for it but I think it may be good for the hobby.
