1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    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
