I dunno. I'm sure somebody could do it for the price of a moon landing. A reason I have been tempted (when I have been tempted) to go orange is better tire choice. If the rear is a 17, then that reason is gone. But maybe with all of us yelling, the manufacturers will build something suitable for heavy, high-powered dual-sports.

with a 17" rear it automatically throws it into the street oriented "adventure bike"

price wise for a rim change... I've owned and ridden on 3 woodys wheel works wheels and have been nothing short of very very pleased

LOL - exactly. Took me a sec to realize this was NOT the 1190. The similarity is too great.

I wonder what it'd look like with knobbies and a high fender and a skid plate?

Hmmm... maybe I'll fire up photoshop

Jim. Where do you see a pic of a 21/18 combo on the new R? This R pic is not a 21/18 set wearing Trail Attacks.

bike looks good , should absolutely dust se,990,gs,vstrom etc on the street and probably all of them except se - duc, big triumph, tenere off pavement. There's a new sheriff in town. Nice except for exhaust placement
