Hopefully there will be a non-DCT option.

Don't discount the DCT until you ride it. Its a great system. I've got an NC700X DCT and its my favorite around town bike, just because of the DCT.

I've ridden it. I'm old and very set in my ways.

Is there a non-US version (I've only had a quick look)? It won't let me submit without a zip code, but here we use post codes!

Edit - I've just put in random numbers, and it accepted it!

Not to discredit, but Honda's global website is the only non-media source that mentions a release timeline. And its mentioned for Europe, released within 2015.

Now that the bike has been officially announced I think it's time to start a new, fresh thread based on the official name containing hopefully mostly relevant information.

Indeed it does... as people were even arguing that Honda would NOT use the term Africa Twin in the name.
Like Honda was going to let that go
That thread has devolved to downright stupid.

CRF1000L Africa twin name makes sense from all angles.

This was posted today:
http://rideapart.com/articles/hondas...twin-confirmed
"It is expected to reach U.S. dealerships early in 2016."

There are some differences in these drawings vrs the bike that was shown.
Note the sweet side-stand
I'm guessing the drawings are what the final revision will look like.

Either way, this bike has hotness written all over it!
