HONDA INTRODUCES NEW MODELS FOR 2013

Torrence CA:  American Honda unveiled it’s offering of 2013 bikes to the press at its secret company museum and it looks like they’re going after two distinct different markets, the younger buyer and the nostalgia buyer.

The retro CB1100 is a throwback (at least visually) to the days when you’d meet the nicest people on a Honda and Elvis was still in the building.  Featuring a 1140cc air-cooled DOHC fuel-injected engine; twin-shock rear suspension; 41mm fork that’s adjustable for pre-load; dual-disc front brakes with ABS as an option; 18 in. wheels. Available in candy red at $9,999, add another $1,000 for ABS.

The “old man’s road sofa” has been tweaked ever so slightly and the result is a funky looking  Gull Wing F6B.   It’s not “minimalist” by any stretch, but there is far less plastic on it than the Gold Wing.  The F6B features a iPod connection, waterproof locking hard saddlebags, a glovebox and multi-function gauges.  The Deluxe model comes with a passenger backrest, center stand, self cancelling turn signals and heated grips and starts out at $20k for the standard, $21k for the deluxe model.

Wire-Plus products are built to survive the rugged urban environment. Their products feature vibration resistant, solid-state breaker technology (the breakers never have to be replaced) and a replaceable start relay that can be purchased at any auto parts store.

Their power modules are submersible waterproof and very compact in size with harnesses that are engineered to be smaller than any other on the market. The lighting control module controls the operation of the front, rear turn signals, and provides load equalization and auto cancelling.  It also operates the rear turn signals as brake lights and running lights with one wire hook-up. Wire Plus’ main focus is on the reliability of everything that they manufacture.

 

Don Bromlow, National Sales Manager for Wire Plus stated, “We have added ring terminals; butt splices, and wire to the kits to make the hook-up of the ground wires easier. We have also added wire and butt splices for the wires that have more than one wire going to a pin. Combining more than one wire in a pin could compromise the weatherproof qualities of the DEUTSCH connectors. We recommend using a DEUTSCH crimper when making the connections and have these available as well.
