No way - they've gone the completely wrong way for me.

The new bike is bigger, heavier, more powerful, more expensive and more plasticky.

I wanted smaller, lighter, nimbler, less plasticky and couldn't care less if it was less powerful to be honest.

The reason I bought a 990 Adv in the first place was because I wanted a good off-road chassi and something more powerful than a thumper.

The might be able to lure over a few 1200 GS owners with this and I suspect that was the goal. But I'm still waiting for my ultimate all-round lightweight 600-800cc twin adventure bike.

700cc V-twin, 60-70bhp, 170 kg fully fueled, real off-road chassi - that would be the bomb.
