Didn't have to ask.

You really didn't have ask. There will always be an interest for Africa Twins in the USA

Here we go again.

Not another thread again. All these threads need to go to jomama, as there is no Africa Twin coming, nor is that a picture of an Africa Twin. It is "PROJECT TRUE ASDVENTURE"

Thumb tires

Those look a lot like the old Avon Distanza tires I ran on my 650. The side walls dry rotted before the tread gave out. I don't know what the weight difference between the KTM and the @, but I'm sure...

They allow the gears to slide between one another. If it was a non synchronized transmission it would be a bitch to shift it. The heavier oil could be messing with it also.

syncro's

Could be the syncro's going bad in the transmission. Check the oil for shavings.

As with all parts needed for the Africa Twin, its all about where you are in the world. Anywhere in the EU shouldn't be hard to find. Anywhere in North America, not so easy.:wink:

Hello mkr

Welcome mkr. Good question. Most guy are using the Africa Twin panels on the Transalp, so it would seem possible, but could get complicated as you would be converting to a single headlight.

Good read

I sat on bike at the show and felt this would be a great all around bike. The bike is heavy for its displacement, but not a deal breaker. Just can't believe Honda hasn't set price yet>
