  • 2016 AT Digital Silver
One of my biggest peeves, after 34'000Km is the front brakes are too squishy, they could have upped a bit the specs, but they didn't.

Of course for people not having original 2016-2018 ATs, this is all good, but I don't see myself upgrading.

Not heard about this sensation by all AT owners I've seen... My opinion (coming from Varadeos) it is biting and dosable in off-road conditions. Perfect for me; I 'be just read this evening about new Tenere/AT brakes, everybody prefer the AT's one ...

Sometime it's just time to change the bike , when this one change , it can be an upgrade...  :-X

Well imagine, I am also riding my 2013 Fazer 8, so old non radial 4 piston calipers on dual 310 discs and it brakes much shorter and dosage is miles better, therefore I bought aviation lines but thanks Swiss rules, they aren't homologated and I can't install them at all...

So if anyone wants specifically made steel braided brake lines for cheap, let me know !

My dealer called and invited me on the 4th of november, for the new models unveiling here in Switzerland, unfortunately as usual I saw prices and Honda is always more expensive in Switzerland than France...

So on one hand we Don't want to be BMuu it's still less powerfull, even though it's full of electronics, but then look at the big enduros who are 20'000 euros or more, I think we compete well in the category  ;D this guy seems to have an Identity problem.
Either you compete with the top and admit to it, or you Don't, must say I really Don't understand the marketing here !
