    Then add all the no doubt fragile and expensive plastics plus the needless electrobollox and complexity.

    So,yeah,good to show but not so good to go.
    I'll give it a miss.
    But it's sure to be top of the stolen by scally hitlist when it's out.
    Yup, agreed !

    This is more YOU, anyway !!

    Almost...

    Funnily enough,I've only recently sold my scooter combo.
    Proper Vespa....1984 P200 with a Squire PV sidecar.
    You could lift the sidecar just by climbing aboard it.....

    They've put the exhaust exactly where panniers should go.
    A shopping buggy then, not a touring one.

    Looks good, I guess with the Integra as a benchmark, this wasnt too difficult. I would be curious to see if the suspension (being longer travel) would b any better than the Integras. I may be tempted even. Anyone knows UK arrival dates?

    It is also cramped for tall people and you can't ride it feet forward because the foot plate is too small. Shame I had fancied one, but sitting on one at the NEC made me realise it would not work for me

    Thats exactly what I thought after sitting on one at the NEC too. Shame as I really wanted to like it, and fancied it to replace my 4 year old sh125i.

    I like the look of that. But the new Tmax looks better.

    That was the guessed price I got from Dobles when I placed my order and deposit for one back on the the 1st of December delivery dates not released as yet but thought to be March And they come with Free Top Box and Top Box Rack for the Uk Market

    Weighs about the same as an 1150GS without ABS. Is that really progress?

    Ordered mine 1st December still no fekking sigh on the thing
    had word from Dobles last Monday that they will be here within 3 weeks !!

    to be honest if its not here by the end of this month ill cancel the order and get my deposit back and buy something else, I phoned to ask if the top box that will be fitted would be the Africa Twin one, and they couldn't even tell me that, Bloody shambolic from the biggest motorcycle manufacturer in the world !!

    Id say it must do Mark Dobles have 12 coming in to them for immediate delivery and that's just one dealer here in the UK apparently they have sold a load of them, the dealer says that the demand was a shock ??

    not too sure about that I didnt think they would sell that well at that cost

    Ive not heard a word from Dobles for almost 4 weeks, when I got an email saying it will be here in 3

    Im about 10 mins from emailing and telling them to stick it , this bike was ordered on the 1st of December over 5 months later they cant even tell me what top box it will be fitted with !!

    I ordered a new BMW 1200Rallye Sport on Saturday im picking it up tomorrow at 9am

    Come on Honda I think this strategy is wearing a bit thin now !!
