I see there's a silver one in Honda Bloemfontein showroom  :drif:

After a few phone calls yesterday, it seems as thou most of the dealers now have the base models ( no ABS, traction control, hand guards, LED indicators and bash plate ) on their floors. Honda Centurion has a Silver base as well, but already sold. Price was R 160,000.00.   :deal:
ABS models should be out within the next week or two and the DCT early in April.

Hi, I'm sort of new here - haven't been on the forum in years.
Was trawling the net for info on accessories for the new twin and stumbled upon this thread.
I got mine this morning! A silver base model. Did a quick run this afternoon of 100km on open road, rough dirt roads and even some mud sections. All I can say is, what a machine! I'm absolutely loving it. From the first moment I got on, it felt like I've had this bike for years already. Very easy to ride, responsive and handles the rough stuff like a dream.
I actually wanted the DCT, but I just couldn't wait another month. Very happy indeed so far. Of course I won't know yet what I'm missing out on,  but not once today did I even think about ABS or traction control. My friend had his F800GS along today and he came down in the mud - ABS and all  ;D.
If you're still uncertain about getting one - just go and do it. You won't regret it. Btw, the black one looks fantastic.

Err I was also adopted.. that would be so weird!!!! Born in 1969 just in case its relevant.....

On a more prominent note Tygerberg Honda received my bike and will do the PDI next week and I can take delivery. So its long weekend and my new bike is very close. Tri color ABS version they getting one which is reserved for me.
