There was a day back in 2013/4 when Yamafitter and I dreamed they would bring the European Gen3 AS over here....... alas they discontinued the AE here.... they didn't market it very well.. hidden gem!!

That's exactly why I don't want to give mine up after 12 years. It's simply an amazing bike. A Gen 3 AE would certainly make me buy one. If Honda comes out with a sport touring bike with DCT to replace the ST, I think it would be another incredible bike.

IMHO, DCT trumps the "less sophisticated" AE. Honda has a few DCT's now, but alas no true sport tourer. Wish they'd have brought the Crossrunner (VFR800X) over here. A VFR adventure style bike, great by all reports. We got the larger VFR1200X, but the seat height will be a killer at 34". Saw one the other day.... nice machine, but.....

It doesn't look like the Crossrunner (VFR800X) is available with DCT. If that's true, it's disappointing.
