Yeah, it's April Fool's Day, but Honda actually did release a couple of early 2015 off-road models today, with their CRF50F and CRF110F. There was also an all-new model, the Honda NM4, that does sort of look like something you'd expect to see as a prank. But underneath the futuristic bodywork you'll find a 670cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine with four valves per cylinder. It also has an automatic  six-speed dual-clutch transmission and ABS.

As for the two entry-level off-road models, their price is TBD, and will be available in June.

Were's the New 250r direct injection 2 stroke? I can't stand Honda, The manufacture that says are way or were pulling out, Just look what they have done to Moto GP. Yamaha and Suzuki both made better 2 strokes in all the sizes, Honda refused to follow,and demanded 4 strokes or there leaving. They constantly cry to the FIM about cc displacement,in Moto GP. 800cc 1 year, change to 1000 next back to 800 back to1000. Honda go bye bye from racing and production motorcycling, and we would all be better off.
