One way or another, we will know something soon because I can't see honda leaving the 2012 ST1300 on their web site after there 2014 line has been completely introduced. Either the 1200F comes out or a 2014 ST shows up or the ST or anything like it just disappears from Honda's line.
    As an aside, one could reasonably assume that the VFR1200 based CrossTourer might have a reasonable chance of selling well in North America, given the growing popularity of the ADV market here, yet even that existing Honda model was not introduced here. That indicates that even the costs of distribution and support have an impact on what Honda decides to sell and where.

    Both manufacturers indicated that these weights are for bikes with all standard equipment, all fluids, and a full tank of fuel, ready to ride.
    Ride. Good.

    Yamaha's website says the FJR weights 637 lbs and Honda's website says the ST has a curb weight of 730 lbs with ABS. The Honda figure is with a full tank of gas while Yamaha says its a "wet" weight.

    I didn't realize you beat me to it! Even though the Yamaha was lighter I went with the Triumph because it was closer to the ST in ergonomics.

    True. How annoying it would be if the 1200T were released... but not in the US.

    I thought that was the way it worked.

    True. We had to wait three years for the CB1100!

    Latest Motorcyclist Magazine has reported that Honda will be releasing the VFR1200T V4 soon and new photos have been leaked though not shown in the magazine. Report is that it might have automatic dual clutch transmission as and option as well as well as a safety crumple-zone fairing and airbag setup. Honda applied for a patent for this system a couple of years ago. It is also reported that it may have cylinder deactivation technology that could improve fuel economy by 30%. Most of these rumors have been floating around for a while - apparently Honda was originally going to release this bike back in 2010 but the world economic slowdown put it on hold for a bit.
