I have no idea what other manufacturers will be doing or when they will be doing it, sorry.

The dealers will be able to view the video after 2 am CST on Friday. That's way too early for me! Sometimes they post it on the consumer website (http://m.powersports.honda.com/model/street) the same time that it is released to dealers. We shall see.

We're getting excited and the "touring" model will probably be a big V twin bagger.

Not a big fan of Harley clones.

Almost chose twin&V4rider but it didn't have quite the same ring to it.

;) I simply don't have a clue why the NC700X and the CB500X are listed under 'Adventure' and the Crosstourer ain't...

Funny people. But... the list in Europe isn't much different these days.

Just read an article of the brand new KTM adventure. Available with either 19" or 21" front wheel. D*m. That bike should have been the new Africa Twin but no one at the Honda R&D departement get's the clue. The XL1000V Varadero V-twin would have been the perfect indestructable engine for such a bike...

Well... lets dream on.

Because this is a USA site and the Crosstourer ain't sold in the USA.

And that was because they couldn't multiply by 12 right Fred?

Or was it 4?

So what does Honda do? Take a niche bike like the VFR800 and make it more "nichy" and price it higher than a base K1300S. Honda desperately needs an updated sport touring bike..
For what it's worth...
I can see the issue with someone looking at buying a new sport-touring/just-touring-but-not-a-luxo-barge ride. The ST1300 is starting to trail the field in technical features, especially cruise control. But if you own one now, I can't see anything compelling enough to trade it or sell it unless you're just wanting out of the niche. Engine heat aside, it's still a fantastic ride.

+ 3 that from my old 1st generation 1993 ST1100
I would still need a good test ride to try the cross tour.
Anyone here got an opinion? Between the two?
