Does anybody know where there's a dealer who has a still-new Honda Rune. My daughter is looking for one.

Thanks.

They may be very hard to find in dealerships now. Try Ebay, alot of dealers were putting them on there. From what I heard tho, the remaining Runes left dealers floors heading overseas. Also, go over to the Runeriders.com board (Hal also hosts this one) and ask there.

I think they are all sold; however, ebay has a few with very low miles still under warranty for a very good price. I hope your daughter understands a Rune is not a Wing and is more difficult to handle. Several Runes have been totaled due to inexperienced owners and unlike the Wing putting one on its side is very expensive not to mention the wear and tear on the rider.

There's a used one for sale in the 3 day old section of the classifieds. 2004 with about 800 miles on it. (haven't figured out how to link you to the post - sorry)

Thank you for the caution, 3putt. She is aware of the Rune's handing issues.

With 4-5 sitting on the showroom floor I would think they would be really eager to unload (err sell) one. But then again the reason they have that many may be because they won't discount. :shrug:

Thanks, all, for your replies. Sometime I will post a pic of daughter's basement room, which seems to collect interesting motorcycles as well as dust (since there's not enough room to get in there with a sweeper). It's an odd family decorating thing. Everybody seems to have a bunch of motorcycles in their garage and basement except for me, who only needs a Wing. ;)

Not sure about "Rune having a handling problem". My Rune handles better than my wing. It has a different feel when you leave a standing start and go around a corner, but after you ride it a couple of miles it's not a big deal. And at hywy speeds it is a dream to ride.

Go to "Craigs List" search in the DENVER area for a Honda Rune. I have mine for sale. asking $23k, but I would take alot less.
Thanks

I"m not a cruiser guy at all, but somehow I think the Rune is seriously cool. If it weren't for the economics right now, and the fact that I'd really rather have a Ducati 1198 for a third bike I'd love to buy a Rune just for giggles and grins. Trust me when I tell you this is not like me. I normally lust for things based on their function - not how "cool" they are.
