    Quoting guys at Zigwheels, India may get the detuned version of 470cc mills making ~40 PS by year end.
    Price it competitively and Honda will have a decent selling bike in their stable.

    Fingers crossed.

    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    With the kind of news that was spread with CBR 150 Naked, I henceforth REFUSE to believe any automotive news through any channel except the official communication

    These bird saying doesn't help me in anyway; I'd better wait & watch the actual launch & believe myself; I'm not blaming anyone here, neither you not Hindustan Times, Motoroids or Zigwheels, I'm saying that I learned my lesson to take all the news with a pinch of salt.

    But, the actual fun is after the product launch & see a bunch of self proclaimed automobile jokers...err journalist, what they said about the launch

    You spoke out my mind buddy well versed than me . Never going to believe these auto journals again.

    Getting a 400cc that too this year end is near impossible.

    The so called journalists have become like regular media, creating and propagating false cooked up stories to create attention for them. I fully agree with what RG said.

    I think this is just news of Honda launching YAWN (Yet Another Waste of a Naked bike)

    No 400/500 ... it will be a 125

    Might as well call it Honda Yawn 125 !!

    @ Divya Sharan

    Apologies for editing your post, but we only know that Honda will be launching the bikes in Japan.

    The rest is purely speculative on the part of Indian media. Whether any of these bikes will come to India, only time will tell!!!
    Biking is not about what you have between your legs, its all about how well you use it!!!!!!!

    Take a vow...From now on, when ever we read such news, we will just pass it as speculation.

    Though I dont see it doing any good numbers in India, if launched. They have to localize as much as possible, to compete against D390. And it will definitely take more time for production and testing. Hence 2014 is legit.
