I don't like the 690 Enduro because it is cramped, not very good for long stretches of highway and only carries 3+ gallons of fuel. It's more of a street legal dirt bike. Bad ass off road, but too short ranged for serious street touring. I'm looking for the bike that is both and not heavy.
So you want a 750cc adventure bike that puts out as much power as a 950 currently does, that is lighter by about 140 lbs, and has longer stock fuel range than a 950.
Sounds a bit unrealistic to me, but maybe that's just me.
