Priced in Germany

German prices are now official, including 19% VAT:

MSRP: 13,490 euro
+ DCT 1,000 euro

It is cheaper than I expected.

Outside of the traditional advrider moaning, of "it's not a HP2E or 950SE Erzberg Edition", priced right this bike might just end up being, one of the biggest homeruns in the "roadie" adv touring segment, expecially with the manual transmission model.

Triumph caught everyone with their pants down, in regards to having cruise control as standard equipment, on the 1200 Explorer, but otherwise this Honda hits home big time for me.

Minimalist bodywork and windshield, will help with adverse / high winds stability and aftermarket windshields are always plentiful, shortly after production release.

Can't wait for Kevin Ash's press test, being posted at around Feb.17 at ashonbikes.com

pricing seems a little more down to earth and less honda like indeed.
even DCT is priced within reason.

I agree. I did the conversion and its roughly $14,500 in USD. That would sell in America at that price. Ofcourse that is before taxes and shipping. Don't just do the currency conversion. If you do it will come out to 17805 which includes VAT that we don't have in US. The out the door price in TX would be around 16ish.

Must admit that I am pleasantly surprised by the (German) price tag. For the Dutch situation however, we have to keep in mind our ridiculous luxury tax BPM above our 19% VAT.

For the Dutch market, the price is rated from 15.999,00 (incl VAT/BPM) which is I think fair looking at the direct competition.

Footlocker...

According to what I have learned, Honda is working on a new version of the DCT transmission... With feet- pedal shift!

This would make DCT much more attractive.

Sunday I will know for sure. Keep you guys posted.

Should be easy. Make the pedal-shift an electrical switch instead of a mechanical link.

O yeah, I allready sat on one in Brussels :



Seating position is really great. Looking forward to the test ride

Two Plugs, attached is the link to the Crosstourer's accesories in Spain. Look at the last item, it's the foot shift pedal for DTC bikes.
