    I'm delighted to tell you members that Honda are displaying a Crosstourer on their stand at the NEC, Birmingham this week. So it looks like production is continuing and the CT will be in the 2019 model lineup.  :028:
    Just love my HONDA Crosstourer dct, and my manual TDM900.

    This is a reply I had from Dobles a couple of days ago when I asked about updates,

    Hi Paul, the Honda Crosstourer is not going to be updated anymore. It has however had a price officially reduced yesterday back to the price that it was when it was launched back in 2012. PS

    I asked if this meant the end of the line for the CT and received no response.

    Hi
    Did show Saturday
    Price around 14,000
    Spec has lost led to lights no switch fitted.
    Asked about any updates no answer from any of honda staff did not know or not very interested.....
    Shame as I took out new bmw 1250gs for test ride to compare ...
    I wouldn't change only thing better on bmw is suspension and heated grips.
    Honda have missed the boat a small update on crosstourer would have been nice.

    I assume this move means they are clearing stock and dumping the model from future lineups?

    If, as it seems, Honda stops making the crosstourer, I think it is not a good decision. The Africa Twin in which Honda has set all its hopes of the trail-adventure sector does not have the qualities to travel on the road with two riders like the Crosstourer, it lacks weight, engine, protection, etc.

    From my point of view, the AT is a mixed motorcycle, street and offroad, however, the Crosstourer allows you to comfortably travel two people on good or bad roads without problems, but not doing offroad is very heavy. Sometimes we want everything, but there are incompatible desires.

    Finally, I would ask a question to Honda, if it does not manufacture the Crosstourer what option gives me to travel two riders comfortably on the road and at a reasonable price, a Goldwing (very expensive), a Crossrunner (small), Africa Twin (it looks like the CT but it does not get it), NC 750 and XADV (for a single rider). Unfortunately, we are few riders who ask that according to the calculations of Honda, it's a pity!
