    Eh Not too impressed so far, just models with a new electric start. I was hoping for a new HRC, guess not.

    I wouldn't mind that electric start on my HRC, even though they start in one pull.

    Oh I think it would be cool to get the HRC with electric start. Unfortunately we did not..

    I talked to a local Honda dealer today. All he could think of regarding new models was a different shroud to keep the engine cooler, and electric start on an HRR model (which is in the video link a few messages back). He said they'd be available sometime after the first of the year.

    Electric start on HRC would definately be welcomed with open arms. Although not entirely necessary or needed, still would be a nice feature to have.

    Why would you pay an additional couple hundred dollars for electric start? I have two Hondas that are two years old and still Start on the first crank. Doesn't look like they came out with anything new.
