Lubbock Dealer

Dealer here in Lubbock is excellent. Head mechanic is a long time friend, and just an awesome wrench.

2015 1290 Super Adventure Alternator Output?

Anyone know the alternator output for this new beast? I know it is about 450W for the 2014 1190. Hope it has been beefed up some for the 2015 1290.
