Handguards Standard?

A few of the mule spyshots had the CRF1000L featuring handguards, Anyone know if they will be offered as standard kit?

I believe the bark busters will be standard equipment. I'm interested if Givi is making the panniers and top box? I'd really like an aluminum option similar to those on the BMW's, I'm tired of plastic.

This is actually a great shot showing the riding ergo's which look really comfortable.

Now only if we knew how tall that rider is that would help to create a great frame of reference.

Very similar seating position to the Honda Varadero which also had one of the most comfortable touring seats around.

If you look at these images the bike is clearly set up for road touring ..... BIG trailie style That's just the type of bike I'm after to replace my last Honda. (Varadero XL1000V). Strong frame, plenty of low down power, upright (go all day) riding position and plenty of suspension travel for those bumpy roads and logging trails we encounter around here.

Finally it's looking like Honda will get it right to take on the GS market with something worthy of doing so!

Here's an image to show the Vara seating position compared to the new CRF at the top of this thread. Very similar.

You could do 1000km a day like this (and we did - two up!) and still walk straight afterwards! That's what I'm expecting Honda will give us with the CRF AT

Heres another example. It's a great riding position for those that have had enough of being crouched over pocket rocket style. It's also good for seeing what's up ahead as the riding position is quite high!

I think I'd prefer Aluminium this time around also. Probably tougher and longer lasting.

Well the image didn't show last time around and there seem to be some kind of edit expiry time set on this Forum.
