Honda maybe just figures people won't be randomly doing oil changes, drive chain adjustments, or other routine maintenance by the side of the road. EFI has done away with the possibility of a lot of roadside repairs... it's not like the old days of taking apart a carb to to unplug a pilot jet.
I've never used any of the crappy "made in Bangladesh" tools supplied with Japanese bikes to do maintenance work in the shop... I've got quality tools to use for that. For "on the bike" tool kits, I've always just put together my own sets.
