I'm interested in whether seat length is important for you. The CT has a shorter seat than the Varadero and the AT.  One of the reasons I chose the AT was because of the extra seat length compared to the CT I owned. But like you DCT was definitely my preferred choice.


Hi MrKiwi,

For me the length of the seat is no problem. Most of the time I travel in one up mode :). Problem is to have a bike with hard rear suspension, so... AT is in advantage.

Hi,

Today after re-testing CT and TA, weighing the pros and cons of each of them, I came to the final decision: it will be a Twin...  ;D an Africa Twin DCT!!!
