Looks like a cross between the Varadero, S10 and R1200C to me.

Gentlemen,
here’s the new Crosstourer, successor of our Varadero, introduced few minutes ago in Milan. Please notice that it is just a concept which may go through further changes, and will not come to the market before 2012. Interesting points:
- three alu cases with adjustable volume
- all-metal anti-slip footpegs (without gum)
- height-adjustable screen
- all-LCD dashboard without any analog clocks
- crash bars with additional lights
- lens-optic front light
- wide handlebars, switches from VFR
- engine and frame from VFR, as well as single side swingarm, complete shaft drive is from VFR
- this concept is equipped with dual-clutch transmission from VFR, but hopefully there will be a option with normal transmission
- no official technical data yet

[alb]695[/alb]
Also a new adventure model was introduced in Milan – VFR800X Crossrunner, which is equipped with 800 cc V4 engine and frame from VFR800.

Can't rescale the pics, so please visit this link:

Not to be confused with the 800cc Crossrunner version with chain drive

That bike (Crosstourer) looks ready to go. Wonder when it'll hit the shops?
