That's an easy one, to make it lighter and take away the element of adventure in trying to maintain it.

by all means-it is ugly!!!
SMT-was nice looking bike
ADV-had it's own character
mix of SMT with ADV susp and wheel-cool

But this one is just some how ugly...don't like the frame tubes, these just do not stick to the bike...same for gastanks...all together is not working and ruining what could have been a bike long awaited for!!!

So the 990 is the end of the Meoni Dakar race replica era?

Does anybody know for sure what the wheel sizes will be? Front and rear? The base 19/17? And the R 21/18? Just curious because in my experience find a DS rear in a 17 inch that I like and that will hold up on that bike is going to be next to impossible. I know we will all know in a few, but ....just wondering. That bike could make me think orange.
