Never heard of HISS meaning that, I have HISS on my bike. (European/Japan speced). Its a nice feature.Knightslugger said:Honda
Also called H.I.S.S
Honda Ignition Security System (H.I.S.S.)
Its an anti-theft feature but only offered on non-US speced bikes. Hopefully it will be a new feature on ALL new 07 RRs.
While I am not saying its the most beautifiul bike ever made, I do like it. I am telling you guys wait until you see more pics. Publicity shots are never very good, first hand photos will be more telling and accurate. As far as the new RR being aimed more for racing and hence its looks. They wanted to stay competive and I guess a radical make over was need. Its different, but I can't really think of another way they could have went. Its growing on me.
