actually, I think you are BOTH correct... ;)

there are no DCT models c-u-r-r-e-n-t-l-y...
there WERE DCT's availabel, 2 months later than the other models, not THAT many, and then they ran oout...
Earthquake 30km's from Honda's factory did not help...
We hear (from Honda South Africa) that no new DCT's in the 2016 model year, more in Q1 2017...

I am thinking instead of getting a cheaper commuter, sell the 690 and get a do it all bike. Also what's the fuel comsumption like at a constant 110?

At 110 you will go a very long way. About 23KM per Liter perhaps even more. At over 120 consumption rises sharply.  .

Hi All

Anybody in Cape Town with a new Africa Twin that is looking for heavier springs. Im chatting to a vendor down there that imports springs and he needs to take a look at the Standard Springs, measure them, and will then be able to bring in the correct heavier rate for us bigger riders.

Please let me know if anyone can assist?

Cheers

I'm afraid the new prices will only stifle sales. They're moving into the BMW price range now.  So sad because I was planning on getting one soon.   :'(
