I sat on one. Seems big. I wouldn't think I'd like it much on the trail. If I'm going that big, I might as well get a Goldwing. I like my KLR but I wish it had more power and was fuel injected. And what's with that "Africa" name?

But only about 20 more cc's using one too many cylinders!

That looks like a great bike. Loving the storage where the fuel tank should be. I kinda want one now.
The storage is cool and the center of gravity is really low. I'd have to say Honda found a great place to put all the gas. Feels like a KLR with an empty tank. Really light up top. It's a nice bike!

I thought the same thing. Good thing is, it doesn't ride big.

"Africa". If I were going to ride a continent, Africa would be the one. Also sounds better than North America Twin.

I think if I were to trade off the KLR it would take two bikes to replace it. A KLX and a Goldwing

I like the AT....and I could see getting one for some circumstances but it's still too heavy to ride where I take my KLR; it isn't about how heavy it feels riding, it's about how heavy it feels picking it up, lifting it over a log or pulling it back up onto the trail! No 500+ lb "dual sports" for me; 400 is the absolute max.

I may need to get one to ride with my friends on their 800XC's, F700GS's and V Stroms though....
