    Honda reinvents the Hawk for 2023

    This time they are calling it the Hornet 750. But it looks like a modern Hawk GT to me.

    Forget the expected. It’s time for a new generation to shake things up. Start with a brand-new engine producing incredible, class-leading power. Dial in a li...

    Wow... that headlight / gauge housing is UGH-LY

      As you will note from the video, they are aiming the bike at "younger" people. Built to a price point, no round headlight, no SS swing arm, and the engine will also show up in the Transalp 750.

        Yeah, I knew all that. I don't think headlights have to be round, but that treatment does nothing for me. Especially the display "pod". But i get it, "Hornet" 'n all.

          Looks like there's a pod "fly screen".

            I agree on that stupid headlight, screen helps the pod part. To be fair I hate that style headlight on every bike with it, not just this Hornet. It's better on the black bike, though not much. the yellow bike body coulored chin bit amplifies the suckyness.

              @wwresto certainly needs to make a Tail Tidy for this bike! Depending on pricing, I think they will sell quite a few.

                Almost a hawk. Cool bike, but to me, a hawk has an sssa, an aluminum frame and ideally a V twin. The last one i guess i could budge on, if its still a twin of some configuration then its a grey area, but the other two are mandates.

                Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                  Well sure, maybe, I guess, except for the fact that it looks nothing like a Hawk other than it has two wheels and handlebars. Or does it also have a 3 gallon gas tank?

                      Honda's answer to the MT-07 and possibly the revised SV650.

                        Yes, that modified CB650R looks nice and could be really fun with the new 750 engine and much better looking.

                        Listed price for the 750 Hornet in Denmark is 3% less than Triumph Trident 660 and 13% more than MT-07, so probably not overpriced. The CB650R (stock) is 7% more than the 750 Hornet.

                        I think the 750 Hornet takes a lot of styling from KTM 790 and some clues from Kawasaki... It is probably going to be a normal Honda ride.

                          Parallel twins are not my favorite, but on paper this engine looks pretty good. The Transalp is a more appealing package for me.

                            Rear 3/4 shot of the black one looks pretty cool with the headlight out of the picture.
