It will be

-fast
-comfortable
-less heavy than the GSW
-capable of a sporting and touring ride (suspension//handling)
-relatively expensive
-a leading contender in the shoot outs
-bashed by all the BMW haters
-relatively boring to ride
-a bike that draws some GSW/MTS owners away

Is that what the article says?

The new SS1000ADV?? looks like the sport bike but for mature adults.

Lets hope it somewhat less than $20K. Not likely.

I never really clicked with the Multi - even though i thought it'd be the perfect bike. Too many little issues that spoilt the package. Never loved the engine - despite it's power. Thought the GSWC had much more charm.
Never happy i guess...

Looks more like a sport-tourer to me.

I think we're getting analogous to the 80's when everything seemed to be "turbo"

I'd have to go with a 1290 Super Duke... There are just too many sweet options out there~
