Looks a great deal like a Moto Guzzi Griso, (except with less cool)

The whole point is that you can replace most of the components with custom bits (including ones from specific 3rd party vendors, apparently) s- the bike was made so that it can be easily personalized. There are at least 4 different rear end configuration just from stock.

What happened to the stainless tank?

Interesting, but I wouldn't get rid of my R1200R for it like I would for something like the K1300R. I guess I'm just not that "into" the retro boxer look.

I imagine you'd get some attention riding around without the pillion seat, though, if that's your bag.

BLACKed out

Why does the Motorrad refuse to black out the entire drivetrain...?

Maybe they have a warehouse full of those slate grey swingarm/driveshafts.

Maybe, but they need those for warranty issues

Interesting. I don't think it looks retro at all.

I'm ambivalent about it. It's ok, but I like the looks of the R1200r better also.
