I'm not too surprised. Honda would need to get a couple of years out of the current revamp, they are not selling in big enough numbers to warrant more changes.

Well, I guess since they didn't change the colors, they are selling this years bikes as next year. Just like the 09/10 models. Guess they still don't want tosell me a new one that bad. Maybe a Yellow one in 2015. (Yellow was originally available in the odd years of 01,03,05,07,09&10are the same bike) I might end up with something else by then, if something happens to this one.

WOW. I paid $16,500 for my 2006 with Navi, heated seat and ABS. Looks like the same machine costs about $28,000 and you get XM. Little wonder Honda is not selling too many of these machines.

I still don't like the body styling and I think the 2 tone paint is hideous... Personally, I think Honda stepped on their **** with the design change - just my opinion and not to hurt anyone's feelings who owns one... That's why I bought a used 2009 instead...

I still think the twelve and thirteen models are intrim modifications to have something different from the eleven and earlier models. Might be due to their move back to Japan. It could be they found it easier to go with the same thing during the move and getting into production. I'd expect a major change, maybe to a sportier version pretty soon. The 1800 has been basically the same for thirteen years now which is a long run without any real changes.

The ruby red looks tasty.
