Looks very nice. Cant wait for mine. Its the first one I have seen with the seat in the lowered position. I wish they had supplied it with an option of a one piece seat as supplied by Rugged Roads. A one piece seat allows you to slide back without sitting on the gap between the two sets. I need to do that as I am six foot five. Has anyone experience of the Rugged Roads one piece seat.
I also see that they have changed the colour of the upper forks. They have gone from gold (same as wheels) to almost brown

With the seat set normal height, you can do that. The forks have a harder anodising I believe.

Can’t wait for mine to arrive, just need to decide on what tyres.

It looks like they are still fitted with the Dunlops, I will go for the Conti Trail attacks with Alpine Tubeless wheels

For 2018 the standard AT seat height remains the same at 850/870 depending on how you have the seat adjusted.
For 2018 the new ATAS seat height is 900/920.

Thanks @BigKev.

Huh so Honda doesn't even show the non-AS Africa Twin on their site yet. Are these actually coming soon? Or will all early shipments be ATASs?

Guys, it’s not my video, so I can’t check things out. However I can answer the spoke question, yes the 2018 bikes come with stainless steel spokes.

LOL, Well, sitting in front of a dealer is not exactly "out in the wild". However, any pics or info that can be offered is appreciated. How about some info from someone who has ridden one of the Adventure Sports model, sort of like a mini review???

Out of captivity then. ?
You won’t see any ride reports for a while, probably end of February or beginning of March.
