    From my reading, it's basically an auto transmission (with different modes) or you can run it as a clutchless manual (with buttons for shifting).

    Great to have some news on this machine finally. If the F800GS doesn't go ride by wire for the 2016 model, there'll likely be a new Honda in my garage for Christmas.

    seat height is quoted at either 870 or 850...looks narrow but who knows.Seat height wont be an issue for me
