Weird I didn't notice that, I'm 1m83 and even with the AT saddle high I can flat foot fine, but I'm not sure I'd switch to the Guzzi, it's barely lighter and makes 15nm less, I'll try but I think I'll miss the Honda's pull.

Also I love my AT don't want to crash it, but I don't know there's something about this bike even when you offroad, I'm never really aprehensive or scared to scratch it.
When I saw the Guzzi, first thing I thought is nice Ducati like finish and design it's magnificent and so, God I think I'd cry if it would get scratched or fall  ??? So might not be the adventure bike in this sense, or that's just me.

1m83 isn't tall.  ;D

In my country it mostly is, most people I know can't flatfoot on most any trail but GS1200, but yeah you Dutch people are pretty tall that's for sure !

More accurate translation
"If you see a tall and sane person then kneel to worship him."

For instance not too much information from Honda france ... the only model which will evolute would be the Adventure and no change for the "basic-normal" model ...  8)

On an other hand have heard about a more equipped Adventure model with piloted suspension (based on Showa EERA), speed regulator, perhaps tubeless rims option ...
as usual: wait and see (perhaps Milan or Tokyo  ...)

To add more weight and complexity? Maybe good for Starbucks riders...

Philosophy of the AT was simplicity in the beginning, and the idea melt into the meanders of marketing ...
