    Looks like a cross between the Varadero, S10 and R1200C to me.

    Gentlemen,
    here’s the new Crosstourer, successor of our Varadero, introduced few minutes ago in Milan. Please notice that it is just a concept which may go through further changes, and will not come to the market before 2012. Interesting points:
    - three alu cases with adjustable volume
    - all-metal anti-slip footpegs (without gum)
    - height-adjustable screen
    - all-LCD dashboard without any analog clocks
    - crash bars with additional lights
    - lens-optic front light
    - wide handlebars, switches from VFR
    - engine and frame from VFR, as well as single side swingarm, complete shaft drive is from VFR
    - this concept is equipped with dual-clutch transmission from VFR, but hopefully there will be a option with normal transmission
    - no official technical data yet

    Also a new adventure model was introduced in Milan – VFR800X Crossrunner, which is equipped with 800 cc V4 engine and frame from VFR800.

    Can't rescale the pics, so please visit this link:

    That bike (Crosstourer) looks ready to go. Wonder when it'll hit the shops?

    From the front it looks like an alien figure, Darth Vader meets Zorg. Too much plastic
