I agree the comparison that many have said between the Honda AT and a MTS 950, it isn't an apples to apples comparison. If you like the feeling of a 2X6 between your legs and want to go off road with a 500+ pound machine I would probably go with the AT in a direct comparison. However, with all the choices out there, the AT makes me feel like i'm getting less than i'm paying for. There's plenty of pre-owned KTM 990's and other bikes to be bought that cost less and are as capable, if not more. I'm not a fan of the Africa Twin, Honda just seemed to try just hard enough to get buyers attention, not enough to own the segment.
