The color pic is better than mine. Why do I feel a plumber is involved in the assembly? Stolen from Cycle World

Looks like the front fender on the XC will need a lift...

You'd be forgiven for mistaking it with an F650GS/F800GS.

The post a couple of pages ago converted some guesses on price into $ from Euros.

If the price is in fact is 7,600 Euros for the XC, that would equal $10,613. I'm hoping the base price for the XC comes in under $10k. Guess we'll find out on the 2nd!

Converted from English Pounds () not Euros ().

The price I posted was in GBP () and not Euros (€) btw :P And the price is never a direct conversion either, usually a cheaper list price in the US if directly converted. I suppose the OTR (taxes, reg fees, etc) is almost always listed in the UK, which I've heard isn't always the case in the US.
I'm quite liking the rather KTM-y promo pic though Not as 'gay' as some of the old KTM advertising pics though haha!

Looks like the XC has enough ground clearance, certainly more than my Wee. Good looking bike, VERY similar to the F800GS, but I suppose that's not surprising really. Should sell more than BMW, providing it's not too top heavy and doesn't have any of the BMWs "teething" problems. Good price too it comes in at 7500 for the XC. Definately interested if it's got enough legroom, don't care about seat height.

Bugger, that's rather expensive for XC. Wonder how many goodies it will have as standard, as fully kitted BMW 800 GS could be had for slightly lower price... shame :(
