    So, this is kind of like the Tiger 800XCx, but more dirt worthy and less touring worthy?

    In addition to the upgrades of the base Africa twin, which include ride by wire, bigger footpegs and more the Adventure Sports gets

    24Liter fuel tank -500 km range = 310 miles
    20mm longer suspension
    Heated grips
    Taller windshield
    Sump and Chassis guard
    and it appears to be a flat seat

    That's pretty cool - looks like this exact model was shown shortly after the regular AT launch in 2015* as a "future model" everyone was drooling over but thought would never actually come to market. Good things come to those who wait. Well done, Honda. LOVE the colour scheme! White frame looks nice!

    * Just checked my computer and I downloaded the pic of this Adventure Sports AT on Nov. 24 2015 (yes, I'm a geek).

    seat looks really tall, so the views should be commanding! You kind of sit on top of the bike now.

    Honda has a answer for the KTM 1090!

    The first pic posted was the old rally concept. The next ones after the news release are all the actual new bike. I replied to the first post before the other stuff hit

    "Less touring worthy"?
    With a bigger windscreen and 310 mile range, I'd say more touring worthy.
