From the Honda press-release linked in the OP:

Honda Motor Europe today announces the new 2015 VFR800X, which boasts a host of changes and new features to confirm its position as a premium Sports Tourer.

The 2015 VFR800X combines Honda's unique 800cc V4 engine with an upright, street-oriented riding position for maximum touring comfort

[...]the front 17-inch hollow-cast aluminium wheel is fitted with dual 310mm discs, worked by radial-mount four-piston calipers. Tyres are sporty street-size 120 front and 180 rear for optimal on-road performance.

Perhaps, we as members, would be best served by allowing the mods and admins of this website determine what bike goes in what forum, accept their decision, and enjoy. Just a suggestion.

Modest "adventure style element" (beak) does not a beast make.

I guess you can argue the V-Strom should be there too but they're in here.......

Ummmm........this bikes EUROPEAN ONLY. Good for them......bad for US, less choice.

Hopefully all this Africa Twin talk flourishes into something otherwise they'll just brand this thing in the US as the Africa Twin I guess if they add spoke wheels it could be.

Nice! I dig it. Great going Honda! Looks like a great looking, compact and functional bike, WITH WEAHER PROTECTION!

The only thing missing is a shaft drive, and the article doesn't say if it's chain drive or shaft, but i guess it since the vfr800 has a chain....

Still very very cool!

Holy smokes! What a beautiful bike. Wish it were available in the States! What kind of MPGs do these run?

Just medium mpg until you use the throttle hard then they use a fair bit, just like the vfr800. It is a nicer looking bike than the previous model.

Nice!

Honda isn't dumb. It heard about Yamaha's new FJ-900, and this was a quick and easy response.

Looks great.
