    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.

    That's a 19" front in FuSoYa's pic. Jim, that's what it looks like to me, too before FuSoYa's pic.

    Guys. Those wheels say tubeless. And those are Conti Trail Attack tubeless tires.

    Uninspired. Homogenous. Heritage-less. Cliche contemporary.

    Starbux Ready. Indeed.

    Will someone please explain to me why this is not better (in every way) than the outgoing 990? I see a lot of hate in this thread and I don't get it. All I see is improvement.

    How about 503 lbs to start?

    Improvement if you want a street bike.
    A big step int he wrong direction if you want a big touring offroad bike.
