    Entry-level pricing gets an $800 price hike, the lineup now opening at $14,399 for the base model. In the US, the new Africa Twin is expected to land in the showrooms in March 2020.

    It appears the bodywork of at least the base model is not designed to accept the OEM luggage without some sort of addon rack.

    There’s a standard ATAS, and there’s a touring version of the ATAS, and the big difference is gonna be the electronically adjusment suspension.

    so we're getting into R1250GS territory, price will be adequate similar, is that market honda is aiming for???
    Any bike from honda actually meant for real adventurer ;)

    p.s.
    I guess I'll start to appreciate more the new yamaha T700...

    because KTM is chicken, doesn't want to be compared to GS. 160hp and 21" from wheel? LOL, anybody feels suicidal?

    has the weight capacity increased ?
    iirc on earlier years riding 2up and gear pushed max load.
