Let me start off by pointing out that I just joined this forum, so apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place!
This may have been asked in an earlier thread but I couldn't quite find out much.

Is there any general consensus if the 2021 Black Edition will make it to the US market? Cheers!

I'm very tempted by this. Or should I get a GSX-S1000?
I rode a GSX-S1000 in March for about a week/700 miles. Quality is not as good as the Honda. Ride is not as good. Performance feels largely the same. Riding position largely the same. Engine not so flexible at low revs.

I have little doubt you could be happy with either bike. But I prefer the Honda.

Thanks for that. Always useful to listen to someone who has done decent mileage on both.

Called Honda corporate and unfortunately as suspected they don’t have any info available.

I test rode both the Suzuki and the Honda. The Suzuki put a grin on my face within the first 100m, and I know it would have tempted me into doing some Very Bad Things. A brilliant bike for not much money, easy to ride, and a real blast. I loved it.

But...

The Honda had very similar performance, its styling and finish were in another league entirely, and I sensed it had some hidden depths to its behaviour that would keep me interested longer.

I can't be certain about the Suzuki, but I was right about the Honda. I'm still engaged with the bike, still learning about it. Still excited to ride it.

Two years in, that's pretty good I think.

I'm getting my 🖤 beast next weekend 🏍😁 had the 09 cb1r for 12 years (the bike I said I'd never sell!!) until I spotted the black edition in colwyn bay honda was tempted by another white + but the black just has it 😜🏍🖤🏁
The black looks cool - But I did see some white bikes that people picked up and then painted / decal over it and they looked fantastic too , thats if you want to go that route. Check some white bikes with decals. It looks good too.

I saw somewhere (SW-Motech website) that the 2021 model is an SC80 platform.

My local dealer has one arriving in early July.
When questioned about destination charge (shown in Honda website as $450), he said that number was for early 2021. Destination charge is now $995.
ha ha ... this is the wrong time to buy a bike.

US economy is picking up but supply-chains are still broken; so, it's a seller's market. I'm not in a rush; besides, I still have two CBR's.;)
