  • It'll have semi-active suspension, as per the S1000RR HP4 and new Multistrada.
  • It'll have updated traction control (ESA).
  • There will be a colour LCD on the dashboard.
  • The low beam light will be an LED.
  • The swing arm will be on the other side.
  • The expected power output is around 130 to 135 bhp. Fuel economy will be better.
  • And it'll be water cooled.
The only things that I could think would be surprises are:
  • We see more than one watercooled model, such as a GS Adventure, RT or even an S.
  • The power output is higher than rumoured. I think that there's a possibility it'll be 150 bhp to compete with the Multistrada.
  • The bike's got another trick, such as stop-start, that hasn't been announced.
Still, looking forward to the big reveal tomorrow morning.
I'll add:-

Cruise Control.
Heated seats as an option.

This is now in the touring category . Horsepower will need to be 130 or more to have my interest,

I don't care if you have nude pictures of the Pope--I won't watch an ad on YouTube (or anywhere else) if I don't have to.
Oh, I thought it had something to do with the incredibly gay song and singer!!!

So, after YouTube takes out the ads you're going to pay a dime for every vid you watch to pay for what it costs to run YouTube?

You really don't understand how things work and get paid for?

Watch out, your turnip truck just drove by.

Personally, as far as I'm concerned YouTube and its BS commercials can disappear tomorrow. I'm pretty sure the world will just keep on turnin'.

It may be a fine motorcycle, but it's damn ugly.

Not really what I had expected, won't make the 2012 look too outdated.

I can see sports muffler, windshield, along with ECE so probably electric screen and the flapper valve thing. There are a few other things that are ECE but I cant make them out enough to translate.
