Anybody know what's up with the VFR1200? I don't see anything about one for 2014 in the US; otherwise it would be my guess that they'd be filling the 'sport' side of the sport-touring segment with that. It has (had?) a bunch of touring accessories, and even when it was introduced, it was rumored to be replacing the ST1300 (a nice bike, no question, but not a great replacement for the ST if you ask me).
As I noted in an earlier post, I do feel for the Honda loyalists who want a sport tourer rather than a sport tourer. This isn't the first time Honda has just abandoned a segment like that and left a relatively small but very loyal (and vocal) following by the wayside. But from a business perspective, I can also see how they can only support so many models at once, and sometimes they have to shake things up to reinvigorate sales and overall interest in the brand. It's little consolation to the ST guys, but it seems like the CTX1300 is doing exactly that.
