Pan Euro

MCN reckon that the power has ben increased from 100 to 120 b.h.p. No figures for torque but with a new alloy frame it should be a bit lighter.

Guess again on the weight. I am hearing 700 pounds wet, about 50 less than todays ST. The St hides its weight incredibly well so this really is that bad. I want to see both the new ST and VFR. I am not sure what I want. My 95 VFR still runs like new so maybe I will wait a another year.

I would like to see the new ST1100 (Pan European) as well.
But the Honda web site shows the previous model as the '02
model. Looks like it won't be coming to the U.S. just yet.
They do, however, show the updated VFR. So it's for sure.
To me, its looks are much improved. Maybe there's a VFR
in my future, unless Yamaha beats Honda to the punch in
the sport touring arena.

I dig the Pan Euro, but I prefer to sway more to the sport side of sport-touring. But I bet it is an awesome ST!!

Talking

If Yamaha brings the FJR1300 State side next year this should be a real battle, I think the FJR1300 will win 2-reasons at least 50Lbs. lighter, and $2000.00 cheaper However is tough to beat Honda's workmenship Pus I been hear the FJR vibrates

Vibrator

Having had a ride on the FJR I can't seem to have noticed that it vibrated. What I would say is that I don't think that it has the build quality to match the Honda. It goes like stink, mind you !

I've heard the FJR vibrates too. As for good things coming to Sport touring, I understand Kawi will be entering this market too, with a bike based on their old ZX11R.
Don't you just love competition?

The older I get,
The better I was.
