Actually, didn't think it would be, but that photoshop of the front end is even uglier than the concept bike! I still am waiting to pass judgement on the lights: is it really that inconceivable that the light can have an output on par with the old? It's a decade between them in development after all.
As for chains, I am sooo happy they stuck with it. When I was in the market for a super tenere, this was the biggest pill to swallow (as it turned out, Yamaha solved the problem by not wanting to sell it to me).
Honestly, I think I'm gonna buy it. There would have to be some very dissapointing specs coming out, and/or a very disappointing test ride for me to step away from this bike.
