Looks like a reworked 885 series build for a new market.

Well, it is. :P

 

It is based on Hitachi's 'A-Train' platform of which the long-distance trains are closely related to the JR Kyushu 885 series and the 400 series Shinkansen. Don't forget that another version of this stock is already running as Class 395 on the HS1: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_395

Is the slogan on the front really "Inspire the Next"? Something is lost in translation...

I really appreciate it when a big Japanese company has a slogan that just sounds inherently Japanese.

I always read it as "Inspire the Next. Word in This Sentence".
