A little disapointed in that the designers did not let their imaginations go but it's really not that bad looking. Ma Honda have given themselves an opportunity with the design to do some small changes the next couple of years to improve the design without major tooling. Solid paint schemes, squaring off the back of the saddlebags, plus a few other small changes. I agree that I think Honda is thinking " don't fix it if it ain't broke". My biggest problem with the 2012 is the price. I'll have to wait until 2032 to buy a good used one.

When the photos were first posted here a week or so back , I didn't care for the back end . I can tell you after spending an hour walking around the several models on display , It looks much better in person than in pictures . Though like you I dont see myself on one in the near future . Or far future for that matter .

The new Wing looks better in those pictures than in the Honda ones we seen.

I do have to say it looks better in the real photo, then the Honda photos, I wonder why that is. I still like it and that old school Honda wing badge was a great thing to do.

Nope, Hobo's ride still looks ugly to me. Just looks like it was tacked together with pieces from a lot of different bikes.
