HONDA HAS EVEN BIG­GER IDEAS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Honda had been chas­ing top speed records with their 1100cc Black­bird and then, just for fun, they de­cided to take the fair­ing off. Plans for an 1100cc Hor­net were un­veiled as Suzuki had been clean­ing up with the 1200 Ban­dit. So Honda con­sid­ered stick­ing a 140bhp mo­tor into a spine frame and ad­ding some four-pot Nissin calipers to bring the beast down from its 145mph top speed.
