Hello from the stormy southeast.. I'm new to this group,, and currently looking to purchase an AT. My question is this: aside from color scheme, and the addition of the Android Autoplay, is there any difference between the 2020 models to the 2021 models? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome aboard!

New color choices are the only real changes, a 2020 on a showroom will have a nice discount! ;)

Stay safe and hopefully, the weather will calm down soon.

I had the same question.
I have a 2020 DCT model.
About the only thing I read somewhere was about a refinement to the transmission, 2020 vs. 2021 years.
When the engine is cold , I shift the bike into gear and press once again to select the S1 mode.
Additionally, I select manual shifting to shift from 1st to 2nd etc.,
My reason for this is it makes for smoother shifts when the bike is cold
as opposed to using it in automatic when cold.
Cold engine + automatic mode = rough clunky shifts.
Any one else can comment??

And, hopefully Honda will identify and correct this anomaly.
