Hey Maple syrup. Have you received your AT yet? I'm in BC and my dealer still has no info on mine.


Hi Guys,


I'm in Oakville, Ontario and Honda Canada gave my dealer the following information, Black bikes-May, Silver DCT (Mine)-Mid June, Rally Red-July.
My salesman gave me the info but it was directly the Honda Canada Reps who
visited him on person the day before. They also left me a mounted picture of
the Africa Twin with the dealer......EZ:smile2:

Hi EZ,
My dealer had his rep in his office last week. Left an AT tunic or something which I was given. Yay. The "excuse" on this end is the earthquake affecting production. It seems everyone is being kept in the dark.
But they've started flowing into the States, so my fingers are now crossed!

I'm just north of Toronto and my dealer has always said end of May early June but they are cutting it awfully close if they can make it before June first. Demo days here are May 27 I think so it shouldn't be long after that if they are coming befor the fall.

Welcome!

How much was your deposit?






Adventurer,


My deposit was supposed to be $500.00 but he couldn't process my debit card
at the Toronto Motorcycle Show where I bought it. So I went the dealership on the Monday and my salesman said....."Just give me $250.00 that'll be fine".
My buddy also bought a Silver DCT at the show and his deposit was $500.00.
Honda Canada told my salesman my bike would be here for mid June, so I hope he's right. I can't wait to ride it with that DCT, it'll be kind of like a Moto GP bike less 150 hp....hahaha

Hello Canucks!
I was told late May or early June. Fifth on the list for a Red manual. I also ordered at the motorcycle show here in Calgary in January. The local dealer has a queue of orders and there were about 20 ordered here in Calgary.
They had a demo day here locally with a black AT. Really nice machine! Still waiting....
First one to get their bike buys the rest of us a beer! :)

The black bikes are first...May, the Silver DCT's are June, and the Rally Red
are the last ones in July. I don't know how long it takes them to move from BC to the dealers all across Canada. But those were the delivery dates I got for my bike in Oakville, Ontario. That was from the Honda Canada reps...

My dealer called today. My DCT will be here in 2 weeks. Looks like we're all getting the same info now so that's a positive.




Hi Blaksled,


You'll be glad to know that my Silver DCT was listed as "Assigned" today and showed up on the Honda inventory. I'm assuming all the Silver DCT's were all in the same shipment. It should be at Honda Markham next week and maybe at my dealers this week or next. My sales rep left instructions for them to ship it to them ASAP. Where are you located Blaksled?

Just got my insurance sorted and pick up Black twin #000003 in the morning !


Hi 1liter,
I went up to the Power Center this morning and guess what was sitting outside Jeff's office. Yup...your black Africa Twin....looks great. Jeff emailed me to come and ride his new company bike the NC750 DCT. What a great bike to ride. When I got back your bike wasn't in the showroom anymore, it was bake in the shop for them to finish the prep on it. You're gonna luv it....

Sounds like a plan. Jeff figures mine is coming in by train to Markham/Toronto.
Hoping it hits the Honda Markham facility this week sometime. Jeff gave them
the "ship immediately instructions", the same as he did with yours. So hopefully it will come in to the dealer next week. Have a great ride tomorrow.
EZ/Paul

It's going to be difficult seeing AT's on the road around Toronto/GTA knowing that my red manual isn't due to arrive now until Sept/Oct. Arrrgh.
