Post New Honda Concept

I just saw this online - what do you think?

Quote:
The DN-01 is powered by a 680cc V-twin, and uses a hydraulic mechanical continuously variable automatic transmission with two automatic modes and a manual six-speed. Shifting is accomplished using handlebar buttons. Honda says the automatic shifts smoothly enough to avoid possible traction problems while cornering. A lock-up mechnaism improves efficiency and fuel economy.
I think it's got good styling. I'm just not sure about the idea of an automatic tranny...

Makes me think that we are looking at another dream bike by Honda. Sort of how their designers felt the designs of the 30s were THE thing in the world & to follow.

What was the other "Edisel" by Honda & were they big sellers with people in high demand to buy them? I am think of that thing the named Rone or Rund or something.
