    Guess we don't know what the market for private jets are. But with the cost of jet fuel going through the roof, Honda might be sitting pretty with this Jet.

    Guess our lesson is that sometimes Honda doesn't do things for profit alone, its the company's culture to do something different and to fulfil dreams. Its a niche type company.

    i certainly agree with this...

    those words bring the Buegatti (sp) to mind...manufactured the Veyron at a loss merely to make a statement (i.e. a 1000hp car).

    As silly as this sounds, Honda is on the ball with this product development. There is method in the madness you might say. I was doing some research today and i found out the following facts.

    1. This product has been developed by Honda to compete in the growing "Light Jet" product catagory. The Light Jet class is growing, and is generally made up of small to medium businesses as its clientele. These light jets appeal to a market who wants private jet transportation, but does not require a larger private jet, such as those made by Gulfstream or Boeing.

    2. The Hondajet is expected to sell for between $1.5million and $4million per aircraft, depending on specifications required by the customer.

    3. Honda has estimated that they expect to sell around 200 of these planes per year.

    Anyway, more information can be found at this link.....
