  Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India gave us plenty of reasons to smile at the Auto Expo today by launching the latest sport touring VFR1200F, the CB Twister and updated versions of the CBF Stunner and the Dio scooter. The Unicorn Sport Concept looks very much production ready and we could see an update to the ageing Unicorn soon, with Honda coming out with this concept to gauge market reaction. The CB Twister is an 110cc motorcycle which refuses to stick to the norms of the 100-125cc class and looks pretty stunning for its class and promises to be a fun to ride little motorcycle which is easy on the pocket. Well, only a ride will verify that claim, but if the Stunner is anything to go by, it should deliver plenty of motorcycling fun. In fact, Honda emphasized the fact that riding and motorcycles should be about fun and the joy of riding and we couldn't agree more. And so, after unveiling a new look Dio and Stunner, they merrily introduced us to the next global 'fun motorcycle'. If you had another little Stunner FI mind, forget it.  Out came a whacking great 267-kg 1200cc V4 powered sport tourer with dual clutches, shaft drive, 172 bhp and technology quite familiar to people from the year 2121. It's possibly the most advanced motorcycle in the world right now and you can have one in India very soon. How cool is that! Prices will be announced soon and if you're starting to get tired of scaring yourself silly on litre-class rockets, this sports touring Japanese behemoth might just be what you need.
