    Just feel like something a bit lighter Dave … I'm tempted to try the Crossrunner which is 800 V4, but its also a heavy bike at 242 kg, also considering the Suzuki Vstrom XT, either the 650 which weighs only 216kg, or the 1000 at 228kg. Food for thought at the mo but I do love the CT, just done 550 miles weekend in West Wales and was fab. We will see  :084:

    I can post but Im sure you've seen a black CT before ???  :008:
    UPDATE... Considering Africa Twin but not sure yet, will maybe arrange test ride,
    Test rode a Suzy DL1000 today, lovely condition, low mileage but not for me. The drop in power and comfort was a great big NO.
    AAlso at another dealership found a 2017 VFR800X CrossRUNNER and had test ride. Loved it. Still V4 but  A lot lighter and agile and easy to corner and U Turn in small space, probably due to smaller front wheel than CT. Great feel and very tempted but might go for a new one on PCP deal. quite a few updates on the spec as standard. Was offered 6k by dealer for mine. FOOD FOR THOUGHT in progress.

    NOW REDUCED … as I MAY be in the market for new VFR800x Crossrunner. A lot lighter than the CT but still V4 and really liked it on the test ride.
    Although just read that the CR (and possibly the CT) are to be axed by Honda and may be replaced by a 1000cc V4 in 2020, so is it wiser to keep hold of my CT till I see what happens ?
    Open to offers over £6000 for my listed CT if any interest on here ?... if no interest or takers, I feel it might be a keeper for now.

    Good luck with your sale.  If you have time could you post the link to that article you referenced?  I'd be interested in reading it.  Thanks!  Mike

    MZFlorida Mike,
    The info I read was not an article, it was comments and conversation on the CROSSRUNNER.COM forum.
