Agree 100%. The 600RR and 1000RR are some of the longest running models, with small yearly changes. But no real out-of-the-box models since their inception, or that of the RC51. The Honda Fury has been their only real "new" model that's never been seen before, that I'm aware of, and that was to attract the Harley crowd and chopper riding wanna-be's.
The Valkyrie was a cool bike, in a Hunter S. Thompson, acid trip sort of way. Outside of that, it looked like something HotWheels designed. Like the Edsel of the modern bike world, per say.
