Lightbulb Honda Firestorm or VTR100F

Just a link from a late night surfing exploration. Nice Australian Honda site.

Check out the Firestorm. Nice GAS TANK!
The bike Honda should have made originally. No doubt about it.

Question In Canada

HondaNut!
I checked out HONDA USA and HONDA CANADA:

http://www.hondamotorcycle.com/model...umber=VTR1000F

and:

http://english.honda.ca/motorcycles/models/

Honda USA has the 2001 model with the larger tank so it must be on sale now in the US.

Honda CANADA has the 2000 and 2001 with the larger tank so I presume Canada received the larger tank Firestorm by 1 year.

Perhaps some Honda fanatic or insider can straighten this out if I am wrong.

Oh TLS/TLR...why didnt you have "normal" suspenders and nicer bodywork?

Cheers,
Kable

The F4i Rossi replica looks like crap (to me) but I think that is cool as hell! Sort of like neon bulbs on a car, cool on yours but I wouldn't waste my money on mine.
Is there anyone who likes the blue VFR? The red is nice, black would be sharp, even the yellow, but the blue?

We have one in our shop. Slightly more level bars, different dash, different finish on fork sliders and engine covers, and yes, slightly larger tank. There you have it. As for next year, the Superhawk will continue.

Cool, thanks for the clarification, Red. You would think that by now I should have learned my lesson about taking for granted what motorcycle salesman have to say. I had noticed, but forgot to mention, the new finish (which I didn't like).
