I would like it to be somewhere in between. Like the Valkyrie Interstate. But they discontinued that too. One thing I've noticed is whenever Honda winds up with a successful model, they tend to discontinue it. Just recently they have discontinued all versions of the Valkyrie, the Magna, the Shadow Spirit 1100, the CB750 Nighthawk, The CB250 Nighthawk, and the VLX600. Farther back, the GL/CX500/650, the Nighthawk 700, and a number of 400/450 models. The 450s were perfect beginner bikes for a full sized adult, and could be kept around longer. Unlike a 250, they could be ridden pretty much where any other motorcycle could. They nearly put themselves out of business in the U.S. pushing the VTX1800, a bike that even a few owners told me they didn't like.
