TWO magazine has uncovered a pic of what could be the new Blackbird. Honda have denied this is the next new model.

TWO say: "We can't see much from the logo but does that say 1200 or 1100? What is clear is that the chassis has been given a sportier edge with radial brakes

While the styling remains, well just remains really!"

They obviously thought it wasn't broke - 'cos they haven't really fixed it...

Does anyone actually give a fuck?

Give me a break, gentlemen.....

We have been seeing this kind of tripe for years..... hacked-together photo-chopped images of the "next" Blackbird.....

It ain't going to happen. There is no one on the planet - no one! - more keen to see Honda update the venerable Blackbird more than myself.

But it ain't going to happen. Why?

Because Honda has apparently grown a snatch where their testicles used to reside. They apparently no longer possess the will to manufacture anything more exciting than a kitchen appliance. If it's not "safe", they aren't going to build it. They don't have to, because, after all..... they are the almighty H*O*N*D*A corporation!!

Why build exciting motorcycles when you can blow massive R&D money on building Jets!

HondaJet | The Sky Is Yours

And blow a wad of cash building goofy-ass white robots...

Honda Worldwide | ASIMO

And money building racing cages.....

Honda Racing

Believe me - trust me - I would dearly love if Honda put its mind to building a new Blackbird. Obviously they can.... they just don't appear to want to....
