It's got indicators, head and tail lights. Dualsport, IMO. :wink:

Might not be so comfy on tar but going on the reports here, neither are the 640.

Mean! Like it. If I win da lotto.....

the bike will be sold as a customer race bike apparently beginning march 07 but to the public - how that differs I dont know - in 2008 somewhere. apparently its going to come out in adventure guise, so who knows - it may change a bit in looks, may not.

the indicators etc on this one are just to make it road legal for some european rallies that include a bit of tar or public road access.

+1

It looks like a chicken. :D
But its a seriously capable bike. I guess when you are racing through the desert, looks doesn't matter much.

looks awesome 8) . i get the impression though that it's not made for sitting down :?: the fairing and all those goodies behind it just seems a little bit too high.
