Honda Faze 250: Honda's new corporate look?

Dailies -


Honda_Faze_250.jpgThis is the Honda Faze 250, a new scooter for the Japanese Domestic Market. Neat scoot, but what we care about is the headlight, it’s very similar to that of the leaked 2010 Honda VFR1200. Does that mean Honda will be adapting that bike’s controversial design — it’s being dubbed “Shamu” by some — across other bikes in its range?

    I think it looks alright, but not as interesting as the VFR. Kind of reminiscent of the Suzuki GSR-600, though.

    Looks like Honda is making good on their promise from a couple years back to morph bikes and scooters (I am paraphrasing, of course). First the butt-ugly (and pointless) DN-01, now a scooter and new VFR that look like matching ugly sisters. I guess it becomes easier to sell an ugly bike if all the other models next to it are just as ugly.

    A little too, “Victory Vision” for me.

  • jconli1

    reminds me of the recent Toyota corporate-fascia approach… which is also terribly ugly.

    It looks about as big as the ST13000 the face debuted on. Let’s see how it looks on something that isn’t as big as the new Camaro.

    Looks like Optimus Prime, Honda’s atv trx 450r, Suzuki B-King, and The Monster From the Black Lagoon all mixed and mashed together. Looks a little “hunch backy” too.
