RE: My new toy
For whatever reason (some of which I can't fully figure out, but just know it when I see it) to my eye that is the bike for which that tank shape is really meant for, and in black as seen on your bike. Nice — Enjoy!

If I could peel off the silver stickers which live under the clearcoat I would have bought that tank already.

Unlike the RS, it doesn't do much for me when fitted to the EX. I think it has something to do with the lines/dimensions of the RS especially with the smaller/wider 17" mags and the fatter rubber that comes with those wheels. It's a more modern looking bike with fewer retro touches that better matches the more modern looking tank. The tank also matches up better with the sportier looking seat on the RS. But we all like what we like an it's cool to think about the mix 'n match possibilities that guys have now.

RE: My new toy
I like the look of Lenkis bike. The black paint and chrome mix balance each other out. If I didn't have the 2013 in the garage I would head down to the dealer and check one out. Course, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get the deal on the 17 anywhere near the price I was able to pick up a left over 2 year old 13 for.

Frulk, you'd probably also struggle to find an RS in the US. Tongue But keep your fingers crossed.

Wow. That bike is gorgeous! Too bad it didn't come to the US. That's the only version that would make me trade my 2013, so far.

That is gorgeous. Certain there are reasons, study groups, etc that determined why it wasn't shipped here as well but you would think there are riders at American Honda wanting to own one of these as well.
