What do you make of this New CBX article?

Here is a link to the new 2018 CBX. It looks too ugly for a production bike.

Do you think they will really produce it?

-why would Honda even bother with registering such detailed drawings if there wasn't a motive, at least a consideration of building it?

-timing, 2018 is the actual 40th anniversary of the CBX , 2019 the official anniversary of the CBX I can't think of a better time for Honda to introduce a retro version

-the recent CB1100 retro was a copy of what exactly? I don't recall any vintage honda of that type/size... unlike the Kawasaki 900RS which is based on the KZ900Z1

we'll probably know one way or the other in a month at INTERMOT or two months at EICMA

Dealers I've spoken with claim they don't know for sure (or aren't saying) but are taking a refundable deposits on speculation of production...I put down a deposit to get on the list, I was 3rd to do so at the dealership I frequent...
CBX a work in progress, still improving...GS1150EFE completed and awaiting modifications.....RD350, remnants in boxes scattered throughout the garage
