Honda is working on a new adventure bike – the CRF850L. If the rumors are true, we could get a lighter Africa Twin. Since less weight means more fun, we hope that the guys at the Japanese bike…
Less than 200kg would be nice but i think just a dream for us all the Yamaha T7 is 204kg about as close as we are going to get i think, but we all got plenty of time to dream at the momentyes, I think it should be a 750cc, putting out about 75-85 bhp, with no electronics except ABS, priced about £7,000 new, weighing no more than 200kg
At only 13kg lighter than my 2016 CRF1000 i think i'll stick with that and i agree about the 700's looks, some will argue with us but it wasn't the best looking bike.maybe they should just re-release the TA 700, with a 21" front wheel, 6 speed gearbox, as well as making it less ugly
The manufacturers are building for the new market lead by the media that enthuse over electronic goodies.
Take a look at the Husquarna Facebook first. i also was looking at the 701 LR, but with the feedback from customers on that Facebook page I thought no way. better to wait and see what Honda brings, either small AT or a new TA.Yes but i'm in the market for a 600cc trail bike lol so come on Honda build the bloody thing i'm so tempted by the 701 right now
CX500 ?shaft drive on a 700cc bike? they wont do that. too heavy
