I apologise for my earlier surreal moment, because I think you're quite right. Honda's bikes in general are mostly ignored (relatively speaking). They get reported when they are first released, but that's about all. In the Crosstourer's case I've seen group tests and assessments where it doesn't a bad write-up - mainly because it gets no write-up at all. Compare this with the constant promotion of BMW and Triumph masquerading as road tests. It's not that the Crosstourer has NO coverage, that is not true, it's that, given this is the Honda flagship Adventure/Tourer, and Honda's importance as a motorcycle manufacturer, it gets such poor coverage it can only be as a result of editorial policy. Maybe, as the CT gets a wider recognition amongst riders this policy will have to change.
