no bike manufacturer updates a model after one year.
maybe colour schemes but any significant changes to a best selling model, despite earthquake problems, is just not going to happen in my opinion.
after 7 years of development i can't really see Honda deciding in 12months to change something that is working, and does work, and have the time to implement any changes.
any improvements/changes are much more likely to happen in a 2 year cycle, or more.
this 'True Adventure' was built as a 80% off road bike and off road bikes have tubes in the tyres for a reason and don't have cruise control for a reason.
i appreciate lots of people use this bike purely as a road bike, and its a bloody good road bike, but because people put a tool to a different use does not mean there is any sense in changing the tool.
stainless spokes are not an update to a model.
just an opinion
