visordown.com published a first impressions article from their test riding of the Africa Twin in South Africa.

According to Steve, the AT is really compact with an adjustable seat 870mm-850mm.
He's also mentioned that the power delivery is very linear across the range and the red line is just below 8,000 rpm.

One good point he makes about the size is this:
For lesser riders, a more compact machine reduces intimidation factor on dirt, even if weight is the same, and that makes the Africa Twin a less ominous proposition.

This review was from his test on Tarmac so we'll have to wait for an off-road sequel.

everyone seems to be loving the slim, compact body

t's all very well for a Dakar veteran to jump on a GS and make it look like a lightweight enduro bike. For lesser riders, like me, a more compact machine reduces intimidation factor on dirt, even if weight is the same, and that makes the Africa Twin a less ominous proposition.
