Do you think that we can install the new Tubeless wheels of AT 2020 On the previous models ?

Anything is possible, whether it would be a straight swap remains to be seen. I doubt the price would be way above the Rally Raid solution or modifying standard wheels.

When my ATAS ES turns up my Alpinas will be for sale!

Ive seen numerous posts from owners who have examined the new bike closely... because of this idea about the wheels and the answer seems to be No.

I dread to think what the cost of OEM wheels from Honda would be. cheaper than the Italian made tubeless wheels from Alpina or Kineo? I very much doubt it.

But it wont be long before there is a definitive answer.

I want tubeless wheels too but rather than buying another set, I'm sending mine to Woody's Wheel Works. They'll take the current wheels put stringer Excel rims on it, heavier duty spokes, super lace it for around 1200 bucks... They'll be even better/stronger than the 2020 wheels. Might be something for others to consider....

Me too, I've read the new wheels are NOT compatible with the "old" ones. It looks like the hub is different.

I would be interested to know if the tubless wheels are compatible between the 2020 standard and adventure sports models.
I am seriously seduced by the standard or the "rally" version!

Please post an update when you get your wheels back and have a few miles on them. Thanks.

In the UK the tubeless wheels are an option on the standard 2020 AT

I did the 3M tape tubless conversion and it has worked great! I like my stock gold wheels. With the savings I'm getting the Mosko Moto soft bags and still saving.

started today with the measurament between ATAS 2019 and 2020 wheels , will check the abs rings tomorrow .
On the front wheel the swap will need first of all new (or standard 2020 ) spacers.
