Can anyone provide any current data on the availability of the new Vincent, with the Honda RC51 powerplant? Not getting anything current using Google. Any help would be appreciated.

They were a 'dream' of one Bernard Li of Eagle One (I think) car polishes. He made four prototypes (I saw Bernard with one in California at a Vincent do 2-3 years ago) but as suspected could not secure a supply of engines from Honda. Two things since then, Honda no longer makes the RC 51 ( I know as I just bought a new 2005 one from a dealer in a far off place (Whitehore Yukon - not RC 51 country) and second - Bernard was killed a few months ago in a single vehicle accident in think in Arizona and again I think on a Harley (or perhaps off a Harley - no disrespect intended)

Sorry, Robert. Was that no disrespect to Bernard Li or Harleys?

Yes! I wanted to leave it at that but the software says the message was too short and has to be at least 10 characters - but I only know 7
