Rumored to appear in Europe this Fall are two new Hondas, including a fuel-injected VTR1000 (a Super Hawk successor?) manufactured at the same plant that produces the Varadero, as well as a fuel injected CB500 naked parallel twin.
The 500 twin is almost certainly for Europe, only, while the 1000cc v-twin might possibly make it to the United States as a 2004 model.
While the VTR1000 would use a development of the motor first found in the Super Hawk, Motorcycle News of England is also reporting that Honda is developing a naked twin using the RC51 engine. MCN states this high performance naked may show up as a 2005 model.
Stay tuned to MD for additional rumors on 2004 models.
