    Dunno...i didnt make it very far in to the c400x video :snore

    The f750 puts out 77hp, the 850 finally makes it to the euro 95hp (70kw) limit. 270 crank should pull :augie

    The 850 is 230 kilo wet, too much.
    Hope the KTM or T7 version is lighter

    Well. I was waiting to see if it was worth updating the old 650GS. Got sick of waiting and got the DR instead, keep the 650. Glad I did. Backward step by the look of it.

    For what the vast majority of people around the world buy it for, Just an allrounder bike that needs 90/10 tyres
