V5 1200cc??

Have you heard about this? Honda is working on a V5 to be installed a sport tourer in 2006; supposedly to replace the CBR1100XX Blackbird. It's supposed to have MORE than 200 HP.

Well..Honda has been a back of the pack in the top end super bike field. With the Busa & ZX12..u knew they wouldnt stay behind forever, especially with the release of the CBR1000RR to battle with the Gixxer1000 and ZX10 and R1.

I havent heard anything official though...where did you find this out?

A good reporter does not reveal his sources. Just remember you heard it here first.

Yeah it is..looks cool as hell already just from that tease of a pic !! IF it's all that and a bag of chips like Im sure Honda is touting it, Big Red will make a big splash in this market.
