"Loved the EBike, but 43-44 miles a day..."
I enjoy my e-bike too, but it cannot do my 60 mile round trip commute.
Its fine for errands.
My red Genuine Buddy looks just like driller's.

Sounds like Honda is gearing up the compete with the KTM 390 Duke and the Husqvarna 400cc standards. I like the 400cc twin, but the Bulldog needs a styling makeover.

Honda needs to hire some designers away from Aprilia and Ducati.

At least it doesn't have the upswept tail, like the CB 500.

Beauty. I have a fascination with all the Magna/VFR bikes, but have never owned one. The new VFR based crossrunner looks a bit awkward. I like the older Magna cruisers. Muscle bike appearance.
