The thing is that if Honda choose to pursue 2t trials bike engines,then they will. They have the backup to do what they want to do.Years ago they developed the CX500 turbo,pretty much because they liked the idea of the challenge of forced induction on a v twin. That was fine on a road bike,but comp stuff is different,luck and personal ability factor just as highly.

I admire Honda for what they have done over the years,they have made bikes for a very broad range of folk,for basic transport to high end specialised stuff.There are plenty of their products I'd be very pleased to have in my care - even though my interest is mainly old British junk.

Well done a bit of straight talking/sense!You don't get to be as big as Honda without having some know how, despite what the "experts" might say!

Indeed, and they're not afraid to make mistakes - only Honda could produce a pushrod motor with camchain problems☺
