Rumors: Honda plans re-create the immortal 750.

From Motorcycle news via Jalopnik
"Honda is planning to recreate one of the greatest motorcycles it ever made, in the form of a new Honda CB750.

Having seen the success of other retro bikes like Triumph’s Bonneville, insiders say Honda has decided to make a modern recreation of the original 1969 Honda CB750, virtually identical in every way to the original.

According to sources in Japan, Honda has developed a new air-cooled engine to give the motorcycle the right retro looks and yet to pass the latest emissions laws. It’s likely Honda will show the motorcycle as a prototype at this October’s Tokyo Motor Show."
