it's hard to imagine that a bike coming out in in 7 months wouldn't have a ton more press.

also, when did HONDA start using Times New Roman as their corporate typeface?

Looks a little 1995 to me.... I prefer the current in Black and silver or Red and black. I don't like the nose on this one at all.

hmmm, taking a design cue from the S1000RR headlights...rear rim with 4-pointed swept ends with what looks like non-matching front rim with 3-spoke up front...photo hack?

if honda was releasing an italian-killer v4 for superbike homolgation, we would all already know about it.  i'm pretty sure all the bikes to be homologated for 2012 have already gone through an application and vetting process with FIM/Infront.  There'd be stuff all over the web months ago about this bike.

I think it's a distinct possibility.  I had heard a rumor a couple months ago that Honda had completely shut down Buttonwillow.  Helicopters, barricades, etc.  A friend of a friend owns a car shop on the premisis and swears he heard 3 different bikes circulating the track.  A high revving I4, A deeper sounding engine he couldn't place, and another that to him sounded like a twin.

calm down boys, do you really think honda would be able to keep this bike under wraps if it's being homologated for next year?  it would have to be basically production ready like now or at the very end stages of final testing on completed machine.

That photo does look like it was made in photoshop.  Though, I do hope that Honda does bring back the RVF.  I've always wanted to own an RVF, but never got the opportunity.  If you've heard the purr of a Honda RVF750R RC45 HRC block, wow...  Do you think there is the possibility of Honda making 2 displacement versions like in previous years?  The Honda RVF400R NC35 was a really nice bike.

The NC30 is nice too.  I had a friend that owned an NC35, it sounded so sweet.  He was going to let me test ride it that week, but he decided to let other buddy ride it first.  That dude claimed he used to ride a Ducati.  I rode up on my VFR, parked, and started to chitchat only to watch the dude saddle up, rev the engine, pop the clutch, and squirrel down the parking lot right into the rear side of a Thunderbird effectively caving in the rear quarter panel and moving the rear end of the car by 3~4 feet.  That was a sad day.  Bent forks, destroyed headlights, fairings, fender, and upper fairing stay.

If this new RVF1000R will be DOHC, it should sound different than the VFR1200F despite the similar engine design.

Brings back memories from my 86VFR (I know not the same bike or lineage) but the paint scheme.

Great memories of my '83 Interceptor, long ago, and new competition for the RSV4!
