Does MCN have the tendency to "make a headline" rather than give reliable information ?
I think that would price tham out of the market over here.. I have been holding out for a new bike on the back of this thread but if it comes to 14k you shall see me riding around on a higly farkled 2nd hand GS instead. I cant see it being 2.5k more bike than the GS is.

One of these days i will send an email to MCN asking them for details about the new Brough superior V17 ENGINED PLASMA POWERED TWO WHEEL DRIVE ANTI GRAVITY ZERO EMISSION DEATH STAR SUPER SPORTS TOURER !
Then sit back and wait for the following weeks MCN which no doubt will have a full page computer mock up of this new wonder bike, along with a release date,optional extras and a price .

can anyone tell.....

what size the wheels are in that trade show mock-up - they look like 19" to me, but I hope they're 21"...

I feel like the rim sizes really indicate the direction the factory is taking for it's intended use. i.e. f800/ktm990's have the 21's, and the the rest of the more road oriented players use 21"'s. I think wheel size (as well as weight) play a huge factor in how these bikes tract off-road - esp. in sand. Thnx.

Yeah what Mr Moto posted. That is freaking awesome and what I envision as a ADV bike. Hoping for a 21" front, but I would settle with a 19". All the good stuff will be aftermarket regardless - High Fender, Crash Bars, Soft Luggage, shields, more suspension travel, etc.. Put some good tires on that bitch, slap her ass, and ride her into the ground.
If they offered that bike in NA I would put my deposit down today for delivery in 2011!!!!!!!!!
