    According to the website Outlook, Honda could possibly be debuting a bike that will employ a 650-750cc engine and could make its debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

    That would be incredible. Imagine a light weight 750cc Africa Twin... We know KTM is working on a 750cc variant and everyone knows dang well it's going to be a hot seller.

    Honda would also be printing money if a 750cc happened.

    If they do a Sport version of that smaller one, that could be really exciting news. :)

    If it has the same amount of grunt and performance as the current Africa Twin, then maybe I'll have a look. I have a 2016 manual shift and just love it. I'm short, with a 31 inch inseam, so I bought Honda's lowered seat and I use it in the lower of the two positions. Works fine for me. I will say one thing, it is a tall bike and it likes to sail in the winds. All in all, I very happy with my AT. Looking forward to the upcoming riding season in a couple of weeks, or I hope....Best...SHUMBA
