The Classic SNES is coming on 29th September 2017 and will be priced at $79.99 / £79.99 (although Smyths Toys currently have preorders listed at £69.99.)

You are going to have to be quick though Amazon have stopped preorders, ShopTo have it marked as ‘Sold Out’ and Game is just crashing. This is going to be another Mini NES scenario and the popularity of it is fuelling this SNES even more!  eBay already has listings for £180 and eBay.com has preorders listed at $299!  Keep an eye on places like Tesco, Asda etc who will probably start their preorders over the next day or so so in the quick so you won’t have to rely on eBay and Gumtree scalpels!

Honda Announce Pricing for Africa Twin CRF1000L Travel Edition :

Honda announces the prices for the Travel Edition of their all-new, highly anticipated CRF1000L Africa Twin, a bike that comes in standard and DCT trims, and which is equipped with travel-focused accessories.

The CRF1000L Africa Twin Travel Edition package consists of a pair of side cases, a top case, crash bars, heated grips, central stand, LED fog lights, and a 12V socket. Bought separately, these add to the sum of €3,152, the equivalent of £2,320. The package is €2,750 ($2,024), and you don’t have to do any self fitting.

Honda are offering four models that can be equipped with the Travel Edition, and this doesn’t include the basic version. ABS and DCT models are the only ones than can be had in Travel trim, for the following prices:

– 15,650 euro(ABS flat color), equivalent to £11,519 / $17,000
– 15,950 euro (ABS Tricolor), equivalent to £11,740 / $17,327
– 16,800 euro (DCT flat color), equivalent to £12,365 / $18,250
– 17,100 euro (DCT Tricolor), equivalent to £12,585 / $18,576.

Of course these prices have not yet been confirmed in the UK, and with the fact that Rip-Off Britain will no doubt be a factor take these GBP prices as a best case scenario, remembering they are likely to be much more!

It does look great though…
