Probably no reasonable amount of storage and they dont want anyone knowing about it yet. That is a big deal to me when buying sport touring bikes.

I'm going with a screwdriver AKA tool kit.

Serious Honda if you need to add 50 dollars to the price for a full tool kit please do it.

Just for the record there is a Center Stand option for this bike. There is a pick of both saddle bags and Center stand at a Canadian web site.

Great Pics,
1. Is that fish who asked the Question??
2. Nice to see that there is an AUX power there.
3. Envy the easy access to the battery Kawasaki (sorry ZX-14 people).
4. The wiring does raise a concern. Am I alone on this one.

I haven't seen any wiring diagrams, but there looks like space for an auxiliary fusebox on the left side. This is not the touring version, so it may improve with more power sources under seat and up front. If it is CANBUS we may be stuffed!

Dear Honda, pay attention now. You MUST put a pair of straps under the seat so we can put the bike on a pickup should the worst come to the worse. A small OuchPouch is good. And, very important, a tyre repair kit and CO2 can.

Make that horrible end can in carbon fibre to compensate. Oh and get someone from Italy to style it.

Wow! no storage but hey at least you can charge your cell phone.....now I would have no excuse to why I didnt
answer my cell phone when the wife is looking for me. No storage, so i hope to see what kind of hard luggage
will be available to the public for it. It sucks that they made the mount for it integrated with the license plate. Now
it will be more trickey to eliminate fender. It wont look as clean i bet.

Most of these newer style bikes have no storage, it is kind of a bummer though because
this is somewhat of a tourer. So hey, the bike better put up in its hype because that is already
a negative.

My next door neighbour has a Benelli 3 cylinder 1000. It is mind-numbingly beautiful. Is it beyond Hoda's ken to have said "This new bike will be the best in it's class in the world, let's get the best bike stylist, and make it the most beautiful.'

Engineers are very wonderful but they should not run the show.
