Off topic again! but worth a look.

Now that's what I call retro. I never owned one of the originals but this pays real homage to it. (IMHO)

What a lovely looking bike. I really like plain, ordinary bikes. I imagine that will be a good seller just like the original was.

I had one of the later iterations - grey import 400 4 - and hated it. Red line at something like 15,000 rpm and absolutely no power below about 6,000. Not a Thumpery sort of bike in my view however pretty (and it was).

nice work, just the sort of attention to detail and history you'd expect from Honda. never owned a honda (bike) but had a car and my current mower ... both excellent quality , the car maintained it's resale value better than any motor i've had (not counting my superb 21 year old yaris 'T' sport, which i bought 6 years ago for £600 and it's now worth (after some fettling) approx £1200) oops.... off topic...

Yes... fairly sure my spelling is correct.
“WITTY” ... showing or characterised by quick inventive verbal humour
“A witty remark”
Hence one would be a wit..... or possibly a Witt 🤷???

Maybe it's a bit of nuf! ;)

As for the topic, bonnie bit of kit, but the sewing machine engine? Nah! A lithesome, or leesh single/twin would have kept the weight down.

Good health, Bill
