Unfortunately I think this is what we're getting in the states. Looks like a repackaged NC700 for more money. Same 670cc engine and auto tranny for a few k more. Not the 750 promised in the first article. Go figure.

It looks pretty comfortable to me , that said I've grown accustom to all the wind protection on the big scooters now , and I'm not all that interested in gong back .

Fits 5'7" how about us that are taller? I do like the lower seat & backrest.

The ergonomics look terrible on that 'thing'. And yes - I think it looks ugly - but to each their own. With no way to move about even a little bit makes me think it would be mighty hard on the butt. I've known more than a few guys who had forward control Harleys - main complaint was a sore butt after an hour or two of riding. Moving to a touring bike with foot boards made for a happier butt in all instances. I always referred to the forward control models as the tavern tourer.

I'm never going to say, "NEVER", but for the time I'm sure thinking it. I almost purchased a Honda NC700DCT ABS to go along with my 650 Burgman just because I really liked the bike. Now it looks like there will be another Honda DCT to choose from, I guess as someone said, it might be the Silverwing replacement. I actually thought the Integra would be the Silverwing replacement.

Saw this and was wondering what everyone thought.

http://www.gizmag.com/honda-vultus-nm4-motorcycle/31522/

This is exact same gizmag article previously posted 3 or 4 times by other members previously in last couple of weeks, wished people would stop being lazy and read previous post and use search function prior to posting to avoid repeat over repeat over repeat of same thing and waste people time.

I could go with, or without, the styling.
I was considering bumping up from my AN400 to the 650, but it seems like the gas mileage really goes down. Seems like I read some where that the 2014 was like 38mpg?
The thing that I like most is the fuel economy.

Most who have 2013 - 2014 burgie 650 post around 60+ mpg not 38.

Me regularly get 48-50 on 2009 depending how push machine, most 650 owner here get in same range 46-52.

Do not think you find very many here that claim get only 38 even with 2002 - 2012 650 Burgie.

Honda also makes the CTX700ND it's a cruiser for $7700 (No fairing) with DCT and ABS and CTXD700 for $8800 with DCT and ABS. With add ons (storage, windscreeen, center stand) it's close in price to the Burgman 650.
