And I thought the original Super Tenere concept with the keffiyeh was vague  :-\

Like all Liter Class DS bikes this will be 'n dirt tourer, not a MX'er. As a 4 cylinder it's likely to weigh as much as the S10 and 1200GS at least.

I fail to see why people who want a <200kg overlander / MX bike with HUGE tank also insist it must be 1000cc+?

Something like the 660 Ten ticks all the boxes IMO but it seems 660cc is just not enough compensation for some ;D

The Big Honda, like the GS and S10, will be what it was designed to be.

The real question is, would the auto box be available in the DS model? (And don't knock the auto box of the VFR unless you've actually ridden it).

That could be very useful in a DS application?

Which brand is that? The Tenere or Honda?

Honda said it's going to bring out a liter class dirt tourer. Now it's bringing out the Liter Class Dirt Tourer (4 cylinder nogal) and and Lo and Behold! People are surprised it's not a MX bike ???

Ek kan maar net lag! ;D

Het julle gedink 'n 4 sillinder 1200cc shaft bike gaan 100kg weeg, 50L petrol dra, soos 'n 250 scrambler lyk en perform soos 'n V8 met NOS?

Ek kan maar net lag...

Is that the official concept sketch BTW? The one I saw had spokes.

Has anyone seen this sketch released on a Honda site?

stadig broer jy gaan alweer op die verkeerde pad af. Ons bash sommer jou brand en omdat jy so tekere gegaan het op die Yammie thread oor die gewig, maar gedink jy sal graag die fight hier wil laat aangaan. Ding is net as hy nou swaarder weeg as die Yammie, wat se jy dan?  ;) :biggrin:
