Good to see this bike get a makeover.  It's been, what, only 3 decades?

Ahh

Yeah

I look at a motorcycle as a tool and of course something that is highly enjoyable to operate.

 Thumbsup

And what if I want to strap my backpack down under a cargo net on the back seat  :thumbs up

I wouldn't call it revised - more like digging a name out of the bin

I did a lot of two-up riding on 250 and 550 bikes. Never had a problem.

Be a good starter bike or city bike. Honda is pretty hit or miss with a lot of their offerings the last few years, these are not too bad.

On topic: I've hauled passengers on my 200 plenty of times (one at a time  Lol ) and it's not anything approaching fast, but it'll do the job.

Okay, I apologize. You're right, if the sole purpose for purchasing a motorcycle is for 2-up riding and so you don't have to wear a backpack on your back then by all mean, go for it. This is a free Country. Maybe you can reach out to Honda and ask them if a passenger seat &/or luggage rack is available. Maybe they even offer luggage specific to the bike.

Again, I am sorry. I didn't think that people bought small displacement and sized bikes specifically for touring and passengers. I thought that they were mainly for learning and economical factors. I figured that's what the larger, more touring/sport-touring bikes were designed for.

My bad, carry on.

Take care.

Not everyone can afford 15 to 20g for something that doesn't even keep your warm and dry.

Not everyone wants to blow that kind of money on a bike either.

Smaller bike with nice seat and comfortable to ride and have fun with is what it's all about.   A very basic motorcycle is a thing of beauty to me.  I have always liked the flat tracker style bikes.

This 500 bike/engine as a Nighthawk would be a thing of beauty to me.

I love that idea as well

You still see those beautiful Nighthawks from the 80's on the road occasionally  Thumbsup

Millennials just don't like em I guess

Don't really care for the styling on these. The old rebel 250 was a great training bike. If it's good it carries on.

I like 'em, and am confident that Honda will offer a seat pad option.
