So, local dealer has brand new 2017 Africa Twin DCT and 2016 VFR1200X DCT for the same price of $11999. Which would you go with? 100% road bike; primary purpose two-up weekend trips, no day trips. We used to ride my BMW scooter which had 60hp and weighted 550lbs so I know either would work just fine in the power department. My thoughts: VFR has shaft drive and tubeless tires. But weights 100lbs more than the AT. Africa Twin: 100lbs less and still has plenty of power for the type of riding I do. But, tube tires and chain. The chain I really don't mind so much, my Ducati scrambler has a chain. But I am a little concerned about the tube tires. I think if the AT had tubeless tires, it'd be a no brainer. Am I over thinking it?
