You bad bad man Bob :lol: ....those itches that need scratching are getting expensive....i find it hard to understand the thought process ktm do it all to a yamaha ?....you will save on fuel though....
The KTM is an ace bike Russ and that one is probably the best one I've had but I love the look of that Yam . I hope I don't regret it later but I'm usually I'm not that sort of bloke.

You'll miss the KTM I did. You should have bought my ttr600 it would have been a collecters item now! Was at the festival and the Yamaha was nice though.

Well it's finally been unveiled and as a huge Yamaha fan, I'm hugely underwhelmed by it. They have had everyone hanging on for two years for this, one year too long for me, and I'm just not taken by it, kinda glad I ended up not waiting another year, so will be sticking with my AFAS.

How does that equate ?
What do you reckon the value of your Africa Twin is?
When can they get you one ?
I was told October at the earliest due to demand down here

My AT is worth them giving me a swap for it, as they certainly aren't going to give me money back are they.

Availability I have no idea as there is no demos so they would order it, I test ride it, if I like it, I buy it, if not I keep my own.

.
Depends what your AT is worth as I said

If it's worth £9-10k then a straight swap is a bad choice for you

If it's worth £7.5-8k then a straight swap would be good

It won't have the power and grunt of the AT though, but is lighter
