The Africa Twin engine, again?

Sport-touring twin on the way? Looks sharp.

The AT motor is a nice one. I grunted it through Moab, the Smokies, the Rockies, and pushed it around Asheville. Capable of the low end side of work and high end pace pushing. Should fit that platform nicely.

It's just another African Twin. Not quite as hideous as that rebel thing, but close.

But a lot closer to a Super Motard in my book.

Saddlebags on a Motard? Ok.....

This is a motard; in style, at least. That Honda is an African twin with different wheels. The disheartening thing is, Honda could make really cool stuff. But they choose not to.
They make awesome prototypes.

Where are the saddle bags?
Less fairing, a round headlight and dual exhaust would be awesome.

^Hey Look! The Honda Multistrada! Take the saddlebags off, and it's still ugly as a mud fence.
I'm sorry. I just don't get it.

I'm excited for it. I have a CB500X in my garage for touring duty. It would be nice to be able to have the fun of a 919 and the creature comforts and range of the 500x (300 miles between fillups, please let this bike have more than 200 miles of range!) for more remote touring all in one bike with Honda reliability.
