I just saw this online - what do you think?

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...:confused:

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.
