    2009 Rumours?

    So what is the news for 09? big changes with the other manufacturers, what about Honda? i think we can assume BNG for the F-15X but will there be another model introduced? What about news on release date?

    I think Honda has brung what they got... heck it only took them from 02 to 08 to change the 12-x platform... they are great machines, but I don't see Honda dropping the cash to come out with a "history book" machine.

    I'd rather have the new Honda than any of the new ones... I love my R-12x even though it's not the best/fastest...

    All i want to see is an R-15x, that new engine is sweet, put it in a smaller 2 seater and it would be perfect.

    I haven't a clue why they won't build it. It just isn't going to happen tho. We all know it.

    Honda had alot of success with both the F and the R (having the same engine)...figures they would keep a 2 seater out there...they have constntly upgraded and changed their motorcycle and 4 wheeler lines...maybe they'll give it a shot.

    The reason they are not building any more two seaters is that they "lost their shirt" on the R models that did not sell and had to be sold below cost. The F models sold 5 to 1.

    Seems the reason that happen was because the R just could not compete with the competition. The RXP had it beat hands down and even the past 2 smokers were considered to be more performance oriented. Those R-12x's would have been top sellers had they been released back in 99. It's too bad because i really like the looks of the R-12X and the fact that it is more of a lean in hull design.

    I can't see the new motor in a 2 seater being a loss.
