More likely will end up with a Vstrom type bike again, hopefully the T7's good sales will inspire Honda to build a lighter smaller AT and Kawasaki follow suit.

The Kawa KFX 700 quad was a V Twin guess this bike if it happens would be parallel?

The seat height looks low, that in itself will fill a huge market gap...

Honda to build a lighter smaller AT

I felt a lot better when I read that bit, because normally I am a bit ashamed hence reluctant to admit I still believe in the Tooth Fairy ....

Looks heavy with that "hangpens". Like a cross between a TransAlp and a 650 Vstrom.

It's not really important how it looks and goes - after the mighty ::) T7 circuss, the only relevant question is if and when will it be available to us...
