Here's a little more info on it.
Apparently Honda is actually releasing production versions of their concept bikes as of late...
Okay, so Honda just posted this on their web site. At first I was really intrigued - a new Honda super-mega-hyper-beast to compete with the H2R and R1M and such. Then I noticed some...oddities, on the specs page for the U.S. version. It shows only 101 horsepower (unimaginably weak for a bike in this category) and, wait for it... a price tag of U.S. $184,000. Holy shit. $184,000 for 101 horsepower. I realized almost immediately that something had to be amiss (perhaps a typo or two, I thought).
Anyway, I won't torture you anymore. I quickly came to realize the truth of the situation, and then confirmed it by clicking a couple more links. They offer a performance/track kit separately which bumps the bike to the specs you would expect to see from a truly modern, MotoGP-esque motorcycle. 215 horsepower, 390 pound wet weight, etc. The kit is not available in the U.S. Wow! A few people inside the U.S. are going to be desperately hell-bent on obtaining those kits. I imagine a fully-kitted version would destroy any competition on a race track, excluding actual current MotoGP bikes.

1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
