So I would only have to service once or twice on one of my regular rides.

(Not really fair as I suspect I would be going lower 'n slower on any ride for which this bike is designed. Glad to see a 5000 mile interval advertised.)

Any idea when this bike will actually be on the mkt? Just visited their site but could find no prices.

Hope it does not suffer from the English disease.

PS with that massive vertical seat dip, it really does look like the bike was not designed for people of normal stature.

CCM to debut production ready GP450 Adventure at Motorcycle Live
WRITTEN BY BRYN

CCM is set to reveal the production ready model of the GP450 Adventure at this year's Motorcycle Live show at the NEC.
The Bolton based motorcycle manufacturers will be showing off the production ready model of their unique mid-ranged adventure bike, offering test rides and some special offers if you pre-order at the show.
The CCM GP450 is set to cost £7,995, however if you pre-order yours at Motorcycle Live then they'll throw in £500 worth of goodies, including a £250 voucher towards any aftermarket accessory.
The CCM GP450 will be the only mid-range adventure bike that's geared up for long distance travel straight out of the crate; its got a long-range fuel tank, a 30KW engine that was previously used in the BMW G450, soft and hard luggage options and a low-seat, low suspension option. CCM are hoping that the low-seat and low weight of the bike (135kg) will help to make it a hit with female riders as well as those who like to venture off the beaten track on their tours.
Adventure Bike Rider's Nathan Millward test rode a near-production version of the CCM GP450 Adventure in July of this year (you can read the review here) and he's excited about it, remarking that “what we have here is the perfect long distance green lane bike, one that you could load up for a weekend and go off exploring Scotland for example. It's a bike that you'd have in your garage on a Sunday morning and decide to take out for a blast just because you felt like it. It is a fun bike to ride”.
ABR will also have a stand at Motorcycle Live, so if you're there pop over to stand 4A69 to say hello!

Does anyone know what the cylinder shaped aluminum in middle of the bike is? Just above the exhaust guard and between the shock and the cylinder.

Yes, it is the prototype aluminium header tank for fuel, with fuel pump inside, production version will be moulded.

I wanted to love this bike. It looks great, has the nessesary bits with no flab.
And then last night I read somewhere that the frame is going to be made of 13 presision machined parts assembeled with a high -tech glue used to hold airplane wings to the fuselage.
If that's true, I just jumped out of line.

Not sure I'd worry about that. Since it's bonded and not welded, you don't have any distortion so things are going to line up better and you don't have as much post fab machining. And come on, freaking airplane glue. That is some strong shit, as well as having the right amount of flexibility. How often do you hear of airplane wings delaminating in mid air?

Bonding is lighter and stronger and thus better than a bolted fastener!

Bonding as a fastener: it simply spreads the load being transferred over a much broader area and thus is a much stronger attachment because the load is not concentrated as it would be with a bolted fastener. Generally the bonded joint is stronger than the parent material because of the amount of contact area. There is much less chance of cracking as well.

You could always drill holes and install chicken fasteners and increase the weight.

If you look at the animation the design of the parts and how they interlock on the load paths this where the true strength is. Having it bonded is an added benefit (over the precision fitting and high strength fasteners). This is a non-issue IMHO.
