    They still get better fuel mileage than just about everything, and more dependable than all. Not that sad. Couple more hurricanes and gas hitting $5 a gallon and people will be hating the high horse machines that only go 5 mph faster.

    I think Honda makes a good, reliable product. However they are loosing market share due to the lack of upgrades or redesigns. I wish they would do something and I don't even own one.

    Also, people complain or brag about fuel economy, and I don't really understand either side. Are we driving PWC to work?

    My take.
    If they don't do anything, a lot of sells will be lost to the competition as even the low end Yami's kawi's etc. look, run and have more features than the dated Honda.
    Fuel economy, give me a break.
    You pay for HP and every single person buying a high HP machine knows HP=fuel consumption. If they don't, they didn't do their homework and they get what they deserve.
    Basic rule of thumb 10% of rated HP. 160 HP=16GPH at WOT 250 HP=25GPH at WOT, yes some are better-some worse but it's a general rule of thumb.
    I don't know too many guys/gals that will run to purchase a dated machine while all their buds are on the newest greatest toy out this week.......then again I still own a 93 so I might.

    I'm swaying VERY heavily towards the SHO, if Honda has nothing or nothing until 09-they won't get any of my business as this is the year for another new ride for me.

    LOL But every year I found out just before purchase time there was something new and awesome coming down the pipeline. The pipeline is dry and this is what we are going to get in the world of 3 seaters for a little bit. Maybe a little more power but no new and mighty SC or turbo's or super hydrocilators or chrome boonderanils.
    The course has been laid and 2 strokes are all but gone, this is it, this is the year.
    So Honda, did you get off your collective asses or are you going to sit it out yet again??
    Oh and the new 2 seaters coming down the line, YOWWWWZZZAAAAA!!!!
