Mmm, I saw one at the Milan Bike Show last year and they do not look all that nice, imo, like the fairings were thrown on as an afterthought - kind of like the new CBR600F, which is just a Hornet with fairings. They really lack performance for a sports bike, too. But I don't think it's a bad bike, I think it's a great, practical option that provides wind protection with the fairings, visibility to cars, a decent look and adequate street performance for most situations and would be very comfortable to tour on. If I commuted and toured, rather than hitting the twisties, I'd probably get one of these instead of the 600RR.
I just wish Honda would come up with different names; it's not that I think they're diluting the CBR...RR value, it's more like they're pulling the wool over the eyes of less informed riders.
