Yes nice country for the roads. For off-road no. We need to go to France and Italy. Or Maroco. That's a dream for Africa Twin riders.Switzerland looks like a beautiful place to live and drive around. It looks awesome. The Africa Twin also seems like it would be very well suited to the terrain there. It should do well.
I think you're onto something... but its strange that they would make that decision after announcing their plans... its not like the Dakar just presented itself as an opportunity... But I do like the tie up...Perhaps more simple. The production start seems to be September. Official presentation in November in Milano. Then marketing launch during the Dakar to fit with the name, position.
