    Two weeks will make it pretty quick from ride to published and in the shops (the magazine I mean).

    You got a point there, they could be riding the bike right now somewhere, the true publishing of a magazine and printed version into the shop can be realized in 24 hours.

    And with a lot of other differences as the list below shows. One of the biggies is the ability to turn off the ABS.

    Full adjustable front forks vs non-adjustable
    Quick adjustable preload and damping rear shock vs preload by tool
    8.5" travel front vs 5.1"
    8" travel rear vs 5.6" (and likely different swingarm)
    Full cradle frame vs diamond
    Bash plate versus no bash plate (no underslung frame to mount bash plate)
    18"/21" spoke wheels vs 17"/17" alloys
    Turn off ABS vs permanent ABS
    Raised exhaust vs underslung exhaust
    Offroad pegs vs road pegs
    Offroad rider triangle (better for standing) vs road rider triangle
    And possibly different gear ratios (based on a comment I read where the blurb said better for offroad, but could have just meant final ratios)

    Our riding styles must be radically different. I get around 7-8l/100km on average and I run Conti trail attack2. Offroad it's much much much worse.
