The DN01 Honda has dropped price from $18,990 Aussie dollars to $10,990aus.. a $8,000 price drop... how the heck does that happen ???

How would you feel if you had bought on a week ago???

This bike must be a complete fizzog here in Australia I think

Maybe it's because road tests have been luke warm at best?

For example: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/motorbikes/scooters/2751990/Honda-DN-01-Phantom-of-the-Honda.html

I realise that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but personally I think it's in a category of its own, namely "interesting but hideous".

So they detuned an already gutless engine and wonder why it sank like stone.

That would only be of interest with about 140 BHP ,its what happens when accountants are let loose at the design stage

680cc engine delivering 33bhp?
Has it got regulators that can be removed after licence qualification or is it fixed at that?
Ugliest thing on 2 wheels for years, well done Honda, on the plus side I would expect (hope) it would have Honda build quality.
