    What's stopping you from getting an AT

    So folks in on the edge of taking the plunge to the africa twin. Anyone else switch from the Nc to the at? What did you notice?

    The VFR1200x DCT is stopping me.........

    If I make a change or an additional bike the VFR1200x DCTcomes to mind and not the AT.

    $$$ is the only impediment.

    Price. Can't justify it right now. Hoping AT will have a resale value like NC700X in five years.

    I considered the vfr1200x for sure. Love the look and love the v4 but is it worth 3k more than the at?

    What's stopping you from getting an AT

    Tube tires. Chain drive. Poor fuel economy (46 US MPG on Fuelly)

    But, like kumatae said, they may be dirt cheap in a few years, then it would be a toss up between the AT and the Super Tenere. But due to the AT's tubes and chain, I think the Super Ten would win.

    I don't mind the chain drive. I've had both and I enjoy both. The tube tires are a sore spot for sure. Coming from the Nc I can see why 46 is garbage for that size of engine.

    From what it seems only time will tell. They are selling off the hook. Putting up bmw sized numbers.
