Hee hee - I thought these photos would find their way onto here soon enough - looks good John!

As for the engine, presumably it is the G450X engine (looking at the position of the output shaft - concentric with the swing arm pivot)... if so, then the Husky variant would fit in? A few more litres of fuel and... nooooooo, silly idea...

I have to say, the quality of the components looks really good on this pre-production bike, and the frame is very nice as well... plus electronically adjustable suspension too (at this price point) - whoever would have thought it?!

This is surely the '450cc dual-sport adventure bike' the ADV crowd have been crying out [to the Japanese] for?!

Can't wait to see one in the metal!
