Regarding the iPhone position, to me it seems really a shame they provided the AppleCar experience without making available a place where to put the phone... I feel the need for an accessory bar above the TFT.
Lol you have not seen me with wiring - lights - switches. I did even put a second OEM switch on my ATAS . I can ALWAYS find places to mount a switch or two ROFL the last two pics are the 8 switches on my overhead in my truck plus 5 others on and around my dash. So yea, I’m not bad at finding places to put switches, but it is nice when there is already a place for them...BTW the first pic is the switches mounted Ed to the stem of the left hand mirror...
Also I might add.. Having apple CarPlay you really don’t need your phone out, most of what you need (controls and all) are accessible through the display. So really your phone will be sitting there kinda just useless, considering that Apple play is more like an extension for your phone..

Are you driving in the famous Coca-Cola truck? 😁😁😁 looks nice.
The fog lights are already prewired just like some other parts like alarm. In the service menu you can enable the function. With the FN button on right you can select DRL AUDIO of headset and fog lights and left fn Switch on or off and volume higher and lower.
The Apple carplay on the screen is only working if you connect it on the usb port on the right side. So I will make some to mount the phone some where.

But will you still need the Honda SCS short connector to enter service menu like it's noted in the accessory documentation?

In the documention is that not mentioned. For the quickshifter you need it but for the foglights and heatgrips not the imu see that there is a current going trough the output based on that the button will be activated in the screen. The outputs are solidstate relays or triac. It could be possible the it only works with original parts not with others. In that case you need to know the resistance of the lights or heatgrips. I just like with your car if your right blinker lamp is broken the ecu tells you that in your dashboard because the resistant is endless. So it is the very easy to program a button in your software that you can hide if it is not connected.

Since Honda Canada doesn't seem to be interested in providing pricing details so people can pre-order the bike for January and my excitement is wearing off from the announcement I think I am going to change my mind and wait until next summer to get the new bike. By then it might not even be this bike. There are 2 shows I attend each year so am going to give everyone a chance for my money.

I get it that Honda Canada is probably thinking that it's becoming winter here so no one cares but that just isn't true. I don't think it is just me who wants to get this purchase done and over with. The problem is Honda themselves not my dealer. The sales person I talk to doesn't have any more information than the consumer does. I emailed Honda asking for info and didn't even get a canned response. This tells me Honda already has enough money and they don't want mine.

So I'll continue on my trusty CB500X for the time being until next year and save my money for now.

'17 CB500X / '20 AT AS (DCT?) in my future

About the same here in Switzerland, not that I want a 2020 model, but their ways are so weird you can pre reserve your AT on the Honda website, but they still have no prices on any models whatsoever, who buys blindly like this also without target dates for models arrival either.


At Triumph everything was clear and they sell bikes even in winter, go figure !

Yamaha XJ6 : the one who started it all (sold)
Kawasaki Versys 650 : 1st trail and sportbike predator (sold after accident)
Yamaha FZ8 : sexiest of them all (sold )
Yamaha MT-09 : waking the hooligan in me (sold not to die...)
Africa Twin : taming the hooligan slightly
Fazer 8 : the every day jack of all tades

I signed up for updates on the Honda UK website months ago and to date, Iíve received nothing at all. Iíve checked my junk mail regularly too but seems that no info is forthcoming. Oh well, next week is showtime and I can see it under the bright lights.
