Pretty much.

I'll believe this when their RC61, V5 sportbike, and Rune minus 200 pounds show up as MCN always promises every damn year since about 2004.

Not saying I wouldn't sell a kidney if it really did happen, but these rumors have been flying pretty much since the demise of the RC45.

It's official on Friday Honda boss said that the long awaited RC211 would be produced and be ready for 2014. The cost still at about $50K USD but when you factor in that the 1198 R in 2010 sold for $40K, the Desmo sold for $65K this bike is a bargin. Also only 2000 models will be produced.

Honda was very close to pulling the trigger on the V5 street bike when Motogp changed the rules and the economy shit the bed fairly closely together. The new bike will probably end up being the WSBK entry for 2014. They briefly mentioned this during the race at Portugal.

Could I afford to buy one...probably. Could I afford to insure, maintain, and fix one at a regular basis, since it would be my main ride and be ridden on the street and track? I would not want to.

It will be good to see what Honda comes up with though.
