Ek weet nie van gewig nie, maar ek weet hoe so n 1200V4 gaan kak op al die ander testosterone stofscooters.
As ek jy was sou ek nie so gelyk het nie.

What does Honda need another big engined Adventure bike for, they already have a perfectly good one, the Varedero. And before there is the communal groan and moan, I used one for 3 days through the Baviaans Kloof and surrounds, albeit on knobby tyres, and it was perfect to take off-road. In fact, here's a picture of us taking it off-road............  about 6 feet off the road in fact!

I've still got that BSA somewhere, that Vara was turned into a cruiser.

Ek verstaan nie dis mense met groot 1200 bikes wat baie meer as 200kg weeg wat comment op Honda se bike wat nog nie eens gemaak is nie.
Jy kan nie n bike sleg se as jy nog net n skets gesien het nie.
Die ST se konsep tekening het gelyk soos n bandiet wat in die woestyn verdwaal het
so tenminste ontwerp honda n bike en draai nie n ou gordyn oor n frame en se dis n konsep nie.     :imaposer:

Fark, when that Vara landed it must have registered a 8.3 on the Richterscale.

 :biggrin:

Now there are 3 things you can see from space:
The Great Wall of China
The gap in the Bull's defence
And the hole in that road with bits of suspension parts in it.

Sounds very good, and I don't care about the weight.   I'll buy it as an adventure/dirt tourer, two up, and ride my DR650 elsewhere.   :thumleft:

And that I think, is exactly the market it's aimed at!
