“H’Ness” or “Highness” or even “His Holiness!“. 😇 🤦‍♂️

What drugs are they doing at Honda HQ to come up with such a ridiculous name?

That name will be laughed out of parc fermé in the E.U. Imagine going to visit a neighbour‘s family and the kids running out to greet you. “Hey, look who’s here, it His Highness.”

Interesting that it appears to be air cooled if not oil cooled. Makes a nice change from the Honda parts bin radiator that looks fugly on the Rebel.

I wonder if it will pass EU emissions tests?

😸

Looks good to me. But it is one cylinder short for me. Names are fraught with difficulty and once the journos have got hold of it they could strangle it. I remember corresponding with a journo some years back who said he would never buy a bike called a Rebel. I gave up on him at that point.

True Robbie, the journos have already dragged the Piaggio “Beverly” into the hall of shame - rightly so imho.

Beverly Range - Piaggio.com

I love single cylinder thumpers. With a few tweaks they can be made very loud and fast.
