I actually like the cable on my Yamaha, but the cable on the Honda was not good. A hydro should be put on it no doubt. Especially if you put stiffer springs into the clutch for more clutch life.

Gotta be today...right?
Or next week, does anyone knows if Honda is known to make a new model unveiling on Friday?

Looking forward to this, still undecided between this honda 22 or a 23 Ktm for next year's bike.

Well she’s looking good but is it just a 2021 engine with a remap in a new coat? I was really hoping for the hydraulic clutch too.
I’ll hold off major judgement till the test reviews..

All good improvements. They said there were changes to the clutch. Extra plate, another spring, and some other stuff. 4% light pull. Dont know how much of a different feel, but the extra durability was needed. Looks to be a solid bike. Might have to ride one in the future

8 lbs is a lot. Where did they lose it?
Frame and exhaust has to be like 6.5 of the 8 lol

Press release has frame 1.5 lbs lighter, subframe .7 lbs lighter, shock .24 lbs lighter. Exhaust doesn't give a specific figure.

Honda should now be in the same ballpark as the Ktm bike's weight-wise, now we are talking, a bit disappointed about the cable clutch, but everything else looks like a really good bike.

Looking forward 2022 250f shoutout.

I reckon pretty much 90% of the other 5.8 lbs. That left muffler was a chunker let me tell you that. Header wasnt too heavy but its still something

The twin exhaust thing confuses me. Surely Honda must have seen a science that meant it was worthwhile adding a whole second muffler, so what changed that made it go away, then bring it back then take it away again this year?

Keefer said a big part is also the switch to Pirelli.

Pirelli tires? I'm thinking they spec'd it out with these because they are lighter to save a few

New bike looks great on paper. More mid to low power. Lighter. Better engine cooling and improved oiling.
Might be my next bike.

I think Honda knocked it out of the park with this one. Hopefully, the real-world test reviews back it up.
The lack of a hydraulic clutch really doesn't matter to me. I would much rather replace a cable than troubleshoot a hydraulic system that loses pressure or have to bleed the system to maintain lever feel.

Rear wheel looks so tiny. Why they dont use 2.15 wheel what is everyone using?

They look so good, the 450 made me want one bad last year, despite having no business anywhere near a 450. Best looking red ones since the last of the smokers imo
