The New Honda Sabre 2010

Honda is about to release its new Sabre in the U.S. shortly continuing its run of chopper-esc motorcycles such as the Fury.  The Sabre is very much styled after the Fury but hopefully won’t resort to chromed plastic as much as the Fury does (awful, just awful)  While the Sabre does look good and most likely will perform adequately given the Honda heritage it lacks the chopper soul and unique WOW! factor that comes with choppers.  If anything it’s just a little too perfect looking.

The Sabre is priced at $11,799.00 standard, and the ABS model will make your bank account $12,799.00 lighter.

Specs are below and if you pick one up let RTWW know what you think of your new ride
