    We can hope. I like the way they blended it into the body. I would also like it if it had more of an enduro look. Anything that gets rid of the long thin neck is an improvement in my book.

    Wish they had done that with the 890 adv at once and not in short timed evolution. They make models obsolete too quick. Good for sales I guess.

    950-990-1190-1050-1090-1290-790-890-890v2, plus the 690 and 490, 390 or whatever is new, man is worse than BMW cars...

    They got their act together freezing the off-road displacements a while ago at least.

    An 890 that looks like those spy shots is sure to occupy my garage.

    Yup, if the build and execution are quality, I’ll buy one. I really like the way it connects the abandoned upper to the bike.

    I do like and prefer the more integrated look of the 1290r front end.

    I really wanted to appreciate this. I didn't know why, but I did. But scanning those photos again, I just can't get there. Maybe I'd have to see it in person to appreciate it. Is it meant to pull in the 1290 crowd?


    It kinda looks like an over priced hunk of plastic, slapped onto the bike like a few other things I've seen. Not organic, not melding into the form of the bike .. more sitting atop it.


    And ffs, take the time to create a model bike with kick ass graphics which pull the product into the bike, seamlessly. Hell, do it all in digital, I don't really care. But this isn't exciting. It's rushed.


    Milk crate meet 7/890 ... :fpalm
