I love having people on my side.

BTW, the M badge isn't just a color/powdercoat change like the Repsol. It's actual performance enhancements.
My example disproved your point. THe M badge is on the performance versions of BMW's cars and it is not the same as Honda slapping it on all of their bikes simply because all of Honda's bikes are not 'superbikes'.
How are you missing this glaring point?

THe spirit of the M badge is to represent performance. Superbikes are performance motorcycles .. 250ccs and scooters are not and respsol has no business being on them. Given the spirit of what it represents, it has been cheapened. You can say what you like, its the consumer that matters and Honda is looking out for its bottom dollar (in the short term) rather than honoring a long term tradition. A simple course in B' school reflects this as a company : cheapening its brand to hopefully temporarily increase profits.. Brand being the Repsol image and what it signifies. W/ it on everything including a donkey cart, it will slowly cease to have any meaning and after an iteration or two fail to command a price premium.

Details you are failing to see. But continue to apply base logic and call people who understand this haters.. It's a common deflection now-a-days when someone makes points contrary to just saying : Whatever bro

Some idiot is thinking short term 'potential' profits rather than the negative consequences of 'cheapening' the respsol brand in the long run. From the way that horrid 2013 600rr looks, it seems people at Honda are asleep at the wheel in more than one way. Throwback Jerseys = Throwback Motorcycles and now Repsol can be found on the side of a wheel barrel

It's not going to have a single negative impact on Honda at all. Your opinion isn't costing them a penny.

It's not an opinion. It's called B' school 101. Google 'brand cheapening' when you get a chance. Otherwise, feel free to call someone who thinks critically a hater.

It's just going to make little weinny kids who ride 250s think they can keep up with the big dogs... For instance "hey bro what kinda bike you got?"

"Who me? Shit fool I got me a 2013 Repsol"

"Nice brother I got me a blade too"

The kid goes "...Blade?"

LOL!!!
