Your last post bolsters my previous one also. Why go buy a new one when you can pick a ten year old version of the same bike at a fraction of the cost? If Honda had revised the ST somewhere along 2008 maybe this would not be such a problem for them as people would want a newer bike with, hopefully, new features. Instead, they chose to leave the ST alone for 11years. Why? Because they haven't sold enough to justify the cost of retooling OR they don't feel that there are enough buyers in the future to justify the expense. Until either of those changes, the ST will remain the same or they kill it outright to keep from being embarrassed by trying to sell a brand new version of an 11 year old bike for $18K. Under these uncertain economic conditions which do you think is most likely?
