    How The New Honda Africa Twin Compares To Its Competition.

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I bet some of the views there will get some teeth gnashing over at ADV forums.

    It's the best breakdown of all the bikes I've seen so far. I thought it was a pretty well done article with quite a bit of info.

    it looks good!
    F800Gs weight, but 1000ccs.
    and it will be reliable.
    i ran a fleet of R1200GS in a rental company, and they were significantly less reliable than the japanese bikes we had.
    and parts prices in NZ are INSANE for BMW.
    i loved my RD07!

    Seems like the new AT will be the practical alternative to the Tiger 800 and the BMW F800GS (bikes with more "character"), but not the class-bending world-beater that it was hyped up to be. Not even the reincarnation of the KTM 990 that it's displacement (if not cylinder configuration) and wheel set hinted that it could be.

    So in true Honda fashion, the Africa Twin promises to be reliable, a little porky for its segment, a respectable option, but ultimately nothing to get too excited about.

    It is a nice looking bike. Too bad we don't have them here in the U.S.
