    Would buy in a heartbeat if reasonably priced. Especially if it comes in a 1L version. I've seen on the Internet that the type R is rolling around in Marysville, I kind of want to go scope it out.

    Is Honda finally catering to the US like we've always wanted? (except putting the crx back into production)

    Inside sources say...

    I like it. If it revved like a motorcycle, to make that sweet exhaust note that turns your head, I'm in.

    I like the model they rolled out at the auto show. Now to see what it looks like when it hits the states.

    It isn't bad looking but I do not like the wheels. Hopefully they realize this and change the wheels before production like they did with the NSX.

    64 horses out of a turbo 0.6 liter. That still seems pretty low to me for some reason. Most 450cc motocross bikes are in the 45-50hp range...

    Even still it's a pretty cool looking little platform considering the models as of late.

    Nada

    Those 450cc motorcross bikes make power up high, and are rebuilt after a short number of hours. The car engine is under square to make as much torque as possible from those 600cc's. This makes it low revving - explaining the low HP.

    True. I was just making a point of HP to engine size/cylinder count.

    :( it was worth a shot. I've had the itch to get a new car, but I'm not sure what or if I'm ready yet.
