    The 390 is going to eat into it some.

    there is going to be damage to everyone.

    which is great

    Don't think so. The 390 Adventure is more Kawa Versys like. It has limited suspension travel (f/r 170mm/177mm). Casted wheels and I'd say these are 19"/17" rims.

    They are 19/17 rims but the power will be up and the weight is the same as the 250 Rally. They’ll probably come out with a 21” spoked setup for an R version.

    That's my take on it too. On other hand it's a better VersysX if it's as roomy and as far as suspension goes it splits the difference between VX and CRF so it has to sway some.. just saying.

    How are folks doing with a 15/38 sprocket package?
    1 up
    2 down

    This could be the best ADV bike out there for what I'm looking for. Not as much power and thump as a MIGHTY DR, but way lower COG.
    Keep in mind, I would just ride the bike around like a old man. No wheelies. Site seeing. No fun trail stuff. Rare would it be to go over 70mph.
    I think 88 was as fast as I got the Suzuki.

    The table below is 15/38

    3000 rpm

    Good point about the mass,

    But the suspension and tyre sizes are way way off.

    Due to profit margins, they most likely will just make one version at a large scale.

    The GS never got a 21" front. Austria could be useing the same play book.
