In the beggining of september i saw around 10 to 12 AT bikes running here in Portugal. It was something kept in secret but I saw them with my own eyes. Also know that it was the press and some guests. This was also confirmed a couple of days after by my Honda dealer.

Wasn't it Portugal that initially leaked the specs of the AT? Wonder if this is a center of big Honda activity.

presentation/training to dealers is scheduled to happen by the end of October. By the end of November first bikes should arrive to dealers. At the moment the pre-ordering already started and for the first 75 units Honda PT is offering a trip master equal to the one used by Paulo Gonçalves in his CRF rally Dakar bike. I've seen this offer in pictures and for me I prefer to ride the bike first instead of ordering the bike with this offer without feeling it.

Hope to ride one when it arrives to store by the end of November.

I posted a picture how my bikes tripmaster looks. And I've seen a picture where tripmaster was mounted to the bike.

Good to have some info on the release, can't wait

We'll most likely see a lot of leaked pictures/videos of the AT during the October training period when dealers get their hands on one for this purpose.
