    For me,the main stumbling block is the price.What makes it cost £3k more than the NC750 that has the same engine and DCT etc ?

    I really like the look of it but I'm not sure it will do anything my Burgman 400 won't (apart from the electric screen).

    I got browned off waiting for the AT heated grips to work properly, bought a Gerbing heated jacket and gloves

    These on the ADV are the same as the AT with the latest module, not bad but not great either , they'll do for autumn and spring, but anything below 8* I'll put my Gerbings on

    I wouldn't worry, you'll be selling the Rallye in about 3 months anyway.

    Had my AT in for a service today and had a very enjoyable 3+ hours on my dealers X-Adv. Can't believe that I'd actually say..... I want one of those !!! Terrific fun, handles lovely, comfortable, quick, did I mention how much fun it was ?

    Well done Mr Honda....

    Had a go on one a few weeks ago, found the gearbox silky smooth, a million miles away from a DCT 1200 i tried a few years ago. Fount myself constantly hitting the rev limiter? But i suppose you get used to it. Personally think its a bit pricey, the fuel filler cover plastic is super flimsy. But, its a good looking, fun machine and currently unique.
