The folks at "The Motor Co" are very tight liped about changes. There are always rumors about changes to the next model year, but nobody knows for sure till the dealer's meeting in July...Unless you've got the spy shots nobody else has seen?
The TC 103 would need (at the very least) new heads, and the plumbing for liquid cooled heads without going thru the block would look hideous. They would also need to re-locate the charcol canister, and there's not a good place for that.
Switching to liquid cooled would require a serious redesign of the whole bike. I'm having a hard time seeing any chance of this at all.
