Custom Honda CBR1000RR
Rick James of Carrollton, Texas, has won the annual Ride for Kids / International Motorcycle Shows bike drawing. His new ride is The Mission, a 2008 Honda CBR1000RR donated by American Honda and customized by master designer Roland Sands.
"I’m on cloud nine," James said when notified of his win. The 52-year-old motorcyclist has been out of work for several months, and says that winning the drawing "might just turn my luck around."
This month Honda celebrates 50 years of American dreams. For more than 20 of those years, Honda has powered the dream of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) to find a cure for a devastating disease. Its sponsorship of the national Ride for Kids® program has brought hope to countless children and their families.
American Honda first became involved with the Ride for Kids® in 1986 by donating a motorcycle as the grand prize for the Atlanta event. Over the years the relationship grew into a formal sponsorship of the entire Ride for Kids® program, now in 39 cities across America.
American Honda is proud to announce the latest early introduction of another 2010-model-year machine, the Elite scooter.
Modern, sporty styling, comfortable seating with two-up capacity and strong, responsive performance in a sleek and highly economical scooter are the hallmarks of the new 2010 Elite. This stylish new scooter has it all. Featuring a new 108cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected four-stroke engine and a light-handling chassis, the new Elite provides all the comfort and quality of a Honda in an affordable around-town runabout that anybody can enjoy.
Best known for its motorized creations, Honda is also a company committed to the environment. Surrounding the Rider Education Center in Irving, Tx., is Honda’s newest Environmental Learning Center (ELC), presenting species of plants, grasses, and trees representing 10 different Texas ecosystems.
