like Touratech, i'm sure they saw the real bike a long time ago.
I reckon there will be aftermarket fixes coming out for the beak and winglets, drawing inspiration from the better proportioned beak and more graceful side cowl lines of the dohc.
Interesting...I won't give a final verdict on the design until I see it in person. It's very angular, non-symmetric and yes, those "sword" radiator covers look like they are just asking to be ripped off (hopefully without taking a radiator with it!) I guess engine and tank/radiator guards will be mandatory for any off-road use. I hope it's not stupid expensive, my local dealer is selling loaded Teneres for $13,000.
Early opinion is: I like it!
+1 What is the thinking behind that? Are they functional? Perhaps to funnel air to rad, but angular plastic shit looks awful. Edit: Houses the rad fan.
these winglets make me think about the MM ones.
Perhaps they should have been in the same colour, no so visible.
They cover the radiator, purely cosmetic. But by making them silver they make them really stand out. Not sure if they could shape them differently, but black or dark gray would look better IMHO!
That 2012 looks soooo 2012 already. oser
is it just me that I felt lucky that I got the last of the air cool GSA.
The new look is :huh
I made it close to the other gray body parts.
And here is the link to the above
Looks interesting. Give them a couple years to shake it out and it could be fun!
The Wunderlich render of the Adventure at post 2275 looks much better.
First mod for me!
They look like street tires in the pics.
I see a viable aftermarket product in some kind of cowl or cover to replace those pointy radiator covers.
The addition of a slipper clutch is great. I have one on my 07, and would miss it.
Any word yet on final drive failures?
I'm excited to buy a used one in 3 or 4 years.
Damn, damn, damn. It looks better than I thought it would. Can't wait to ride one. g-
I wonder what the Adventure model would look like!
