In my opinion, all the 3 variants will do very well for Honda globally.

Specifically for India, i think the best performing variant will be the R. Also, like myself, i am sure there were many kids who drooled over the BMW F650 available in India almost 2 decades ago. Those now grown up kids will surely find some satisfaction within their budgets in the X variant. It surely looks like its all Indian conditions ready and there will be no 'ouch' moments on the X while it passes through a pot hole.

Honda must price them competitively.

Does anyone know if any of these bikes are going to be launched in India this year? This is one thread I'm tracking, hoping for an post that goes "Launched here..."

These bikes have great potential in India. Honda should start the CKD route soon. Only downer I guess will be the power ratings. Looks like the BHP rating is almost similar to the KTM 390(Honda 500 is parallel twin with approx 45 bhp and KTM 390 single is around 44 bhp). And when Bajaj thinks of assembling the 390 in India the price will surely be very competetive compared to the Honda 500's. The 500's will then look under powered and expensive.

Those are pictures of VFR1200, which has been around since 2011, IIRC.
