looks like DCT bikes come standard with bash plates and bark busters, while base manuals come with nothing...

Good eye!! The one at the top of the page doesn't have either. I wonder what else you get? DCT, ABS, skid plate, hand guards, ???

This http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bikes/official-details-photos-2016-honda-crf1000l-africa-twin/ has the most details and most hi-res photos of the AT I've seen. Including this:"What we think ADV riders will come around to is Honda’s off-road built dual-clutch transmission, which will have the benefit of making shifts while out of the saddle much easier, and giving clutch-free operation, much like a Rekluse clutch.
Of course the DCT from Honda is very advanced, and it can even sense when the Africa Twin is ascending or descending a steep hill. When it does so, the Africa Twin adjusts its shifting points accordingly: during ascents, upshifts are delayed in order to allow a higher rpm to be held; on descents, downshifts happen earlier to enable better engine braking.
As is the trend, the ABS can be switched off for the rear-wheel, allowing off-road riders to lock-up the real-wheel during braking maneuvers."

This shows "Dakar Rally" as white. I thought it was red based on the U.S. spec sheet. They have one picture of the white in the instrument shot on the American Honda page. Could my dream of buying a U.S. spec white DCT be alive again?
I dont think so unfortunately. American Honda has a picture of the tricolour labelled EUROPEAN MODEL SHOWN
