I would really like to see the new 850 africa twin to have a gas tank similar to the ktm 790 adventure r 2020! Keep the weight low and not top heavy for us short riders. Less electronics would be cool as well. From my experience most adventure bikes feel top heavy with a tank so high on the bike.

I'm with you on less electronics. Honda's done a pretty good job getting the COG low on the CRF1000/1100 as well as the relatively heavy NC700/750X. It appears the smaller AT will utilize a redesigned, more powerful and lighter version of the forward lean motor that's in the NC750 so it should be light and have a low COG, lower than a T700 for sure.
