Oh, and of course it'll tour, any bike will tour.
He got it mostly right.
There's actually all 3, but the 78hp version is the old Fazer now,
NOT the S2. You can still buy the now old Fazer here, but it's been
detuned to 78hp for some reason.

The new S2 is avaliable as mentioned with 98hp, like the old version,
and restricted in some countrys at 34hp.

Also worth mentioning is that the S2 is reworked a bit, and it's not only
cosmetics, so it SHOULD be a better bike.

Only one downside, and it's a big one considering the subject of this
thread. The windscreen is _smaller_ and sits lower then before, and
most mags have reported that the wind protection is worse then on
the old model
