    I am considering coming back

    I used to own a 2012 DCT and I am now looking to come back unfortunately I cannot get a test ride on a demonstrator of the bike with the upgraded DCT software. I contacted Honda UK and they basically pointed me in the direction of dealers with used 2016 models. My main concern is that if dealers will not register a demonstrator do they know something we don't that there is a replacement model imminent. I don't want to buy a new bike and then next year they replace the bike with something better.

    So my question is has anyone heard any rumours of a replacement for this bike.

    Demonstrators tend to be relatively newer models, so I wouldn't read much into a lack of a demonstrator. Any news is more likely later in the year but I suspect there will be no immenent changes. In fact with Euro 5 coming at the end of next year, I doubt there will be many new bikes this year.

    Just got a 2015 CT all black with silver top and just under 40,000 on the clock. It rides like new and all fully serviced by Honda. It cost me less than half the price of new and nearly all the depreciation has been picked up by the previous owner. That mileage is nothing on a bike like this and is only just run in. :001:

    Are you not worried by the mileage I've seen a few bike with high mileage that I've liked but I'm concerned about high mileage with the DCT

    A mate of mine has a VFR1200f with 97,000 on the clock no issues whatsoever,


    I bet fotodadi has lots of miles on his dct, these engines are built for big miles :037:
