    Wish I hadn't read that......:D

    No spoked wheels? Seems like an even more road oriented bike now with its target sight set on the Multi and/or Tiger.

    So far I like what I see....wish it had Ohlins though :lol3

    The muffler looks a bit slimmer, hopefully the right saddlebag will have a smaller cutout. The LCD display in HFL gallery looks monochrome, not color as everyone expected. But the characters are larger to please old guys.

    Yes, the clutch now lives under the front cover! :clap

    The oil filter is on the left side. No more pulling a skid plate to get it.

    No mention of being able to turn off the ABS. :huh

    Interesting. Liking the engine from what I see (low, appears very integrated), but the spiky bodywork and fenders make me wonder. Poseidon, your trident has inspired an entire motorcycle!

    The weight bumped up a bit: 523 lbs ready to go vs 505 for the current version. Still not a big fan of the header tubes hugging the engine block. . .

    OK, that is a bit better. Still not crazy about the midievil silver sword forward side covers, but it isn't as bad as the Wonderlich drawings made it look.

    I noticed that the Akrapovic can now comes supplied with a garish HP logo.

    Does that mean we're going to see a range of HP2 bikes? I hope so. :D

    No, I don't care for the stupid winglet, beak, but these are easily fixed. I do think the new engine casing looks very well packaged and nicely finished in comparison.

    I didn't expect it, but BMW retained Brembo branding on the calipers, just as seen in Wunderlich predictions.

    Ugh, it looks like the same demented elf that started doing their cars is now doing the styling on their motorcycles.

    It's so drastic plastic disgusting. A technical marvel yes, styling:puke1
