    Well it certainly appears that honda was listening regarding the new ATAS. It's moved away from what I'm interested in, but it addresses everything but shaft drive. It also doesn't appear to have addressed any fork issues.

    On another note, an article mentioned that 87,000 africa twins have been sold to date since the 2016 model.... That's alot of bikes.

    Some big changes. This is the bike the AT should have been 4 years ago.
    Cruise is a nice edition.
    Forks look like ATAS outers on reg twin.

    The base model is getting CC. That's welcome surprise. No tubeless though. That red base model is definitely the looker of the bunch. Wish that short screen would fit on the current models.

    Specially considering some of the changes had no cost and were available twenty years ago.

    Notice the difference between the reg AT and the ES upper fork ;) :

    It's going to be interesting how many parts would be interchangeable to the old models.

    They say Tubeless in the video, also note different air intakes and twin o2 sensors. Looks like two tool boxes on the side plastics by the back seat???
