RMac, do know the mfg of your skid plate? I have one already, but it has a hole in it big enough to drop the oil filter from and kind of defeats the purpose in the protection aspect.

Time to resurrect this thread since Feb '09 Motor Cyclist magazine talks about the bike being shown to dealers @ an EICMA reception. Any sheister dealers out there who snuck a photo feel free to post here! Kinda like the guy who got his first photos of the MG Stelvio out there.

I was very tempted by one of those hyper motos. If they turn it into an adventure bike I expect to get one

Both claim a 1200 version with 100hp+

When I dropped my desmo in for a valve check my mechanic said... "I'll check it but it won't need adjusting. They're not like japanese bikes".

Didn't need adjusting. They bed in quick then don't change. I'd take desmo every time.

As for those pictures above. That is a fugly piece of crap. If it looks like that the elefant is staying.

Here is the cover for tomorrows' MCN. Duke is top right. Heavily disguised but clearly liquid cooled, road orientated tourer. Looks like a direct rival for the Moto Morini Granpasso and the Tiger.
