As far as weight, low 400 lb mark DRY wouldn't be that hard either. Hell man, the 2012 990 Adventure R is 456 lbs dry ! ! ! Doesn't seem to "unrealistic" to me.
I think it was 436 lbs dry,50 lbs lighter would be nice. They sold the se for a while but not a huge seller so an entirely new 750 platform might be a tough bussiness case but who knows
