They also said they heard (from a questionable source) that 675 Daytona cams could be put in to get about 125bhp instead of the standard 95PS.
£7000 for the 800 Roadie - 210kg
£7600 for the XC - 200mm front travel, about 15mm higher seat, handguards and rad guard are standard
ABS £600

And what happened to the 'hardcore off-road tiger' thread?
Do you have this in American numbers?

£7000 = $11,081.21 for the 800 Roadie - 210kg = 463 lbs.
£7600 = $12,031.03 for the XC - 200mm = 7.87" front travel, about 15mm = .59" higher seat, handguards and rad guard are standard
ABS £600 = $959.82
There's an app for that!

I knowd that.

Just looking for an excuse to actually use that particular app.

Plus, I was kind of curious to see the numbers translated myself. 463 lbs and almost 8" of front wheel travel. Hmm.

F 800 GS is 455 lbs fuled with 9" of front wheel travel according to BMW's site.

Interesting.

Of course, nobody actually knows anything.
