Don't know if they will sell many or not but...unless you mean 1300 cc they haven't offered a large displacement cruiser since 2008 when the VTX 1800 was discontinued. The 1300 is a far different animal (chopper type) than the F6B.

Well. It is a cruiser and does kinda look like a H-D which might be a good thing for Honda.

If you put a larger windshield on the bike--it will weep

The more I look at the red version the more I like it

Imagine if the saddlebags snapped off. That would be badazz

I've wondered forever why Honda hasn't used the GL1800 frame and engine to be the basis for additional models (sport-tourer and cruiser) for the past several years! As a practical economic matter, why develop a brand new super BMW-beater when you can instead spread the model line in this way with some VERY cool hardware... keeping control of YOUR niche!!!

The GL1088 is getting (very) long of tooth...

For 11 years folks have griped about the turn signals cancelling TOO SOON.

Personally, I think non-cancelling turn signals are an improvement !

I wonder how they come up with the F6B tag. I think I could be a little more creative than that.
