Oh my , things are being blown out of proportion again :laugh: , "disaster" ? really ? Look at the sales figures :whistle:Zookman wrote:This new AT is turning out to be a disaster. DCT probs, switchgear probs, ABS probs, corrosion probs....Wonder what'll be next.
Glad it was never a bike i'd have been interested in buying.
One bike from thousands sold had a problem , does that mean that they are all shite ?
And we don't even know what the problem is or what caused it , too quick to judge and all that .
Corroding spokes are nothing new with honda , the last 3 Honda's i have owned have had the exact same issue , last one was the 2000 XR 650 R , spokes turned ugly just by looking at water . Not the end of the world . New updated switch gear is coming , again not a biggie , there is a long list of bikes that have had the same problem not just Honda or BMW .
Anyone remember the introduction of the Water cooled GS ? few issues there including fatality ! , now one of the best selling bikes .
In the good old days people did not have the internet and information aviability as today that is why so many naively believe that the old bikes were better , there was always some kind of problem especially with a new model , but not many knew about it (thumbs)
