[email protected], I, and I believe many others, fully agree with you. All these problems you list and more you do not list, we Honda ATAS owners are experiencing, are very disappointing, at least. The more I ride the bike and 'tinker' with it, the more I realize how the bike seems to be 'slapped' together. I have owned my ATAS for 7 months now and she has spend about 55 days in service for warranty work, waiting for backordered parts, waiting for Honda USA reply, etc. New buyers should be fully aware of what some, if not most of current owner, are going thru.

My ATAS is a 2018, number 816 off the line on Kumamoto. It's also a K. I really want to siphon some gas out from a low spot because I'm starting to get some sputtering when first starting up. Frame paint seems fine - but they really put no thought into servicing this thing. And the only tools I got were a crappy screwdriver and a piece if cable. A bike this expensive should come with all the tools needed to change a tire and the oil.

Estou a tentar resolver o problema com a Honda. Apresentam soluções que não são viáveis. Pintura local etc. O teu quadro é o branco?

So...today I visited the new ATAS2020. Looks great and just by sitting on it, i'm almost certain that some real improvements were considered. BUT...nevertheless I took my mini-flashlight and started to noose around the old "new" frame details...guys it's the same pile of horse dumping. I'm was not expecting that...I'm speechless...and strangely comforted with the status. The new Honda pray is "this is our standard product finish" ... all my weight was used agains me...the perfect OSOTO-GARY! ippon! I quit!
