Does the 701 have the same false neutral between 5th and 6th issue the 690 has?   :pot: (fixed  ;))

No, honest question, I really want to know since I am thinking of getting one.

The gearbox on the 690 is not the best but some like to exaggerate the issue. It's really not as bad as some say

I was thinking the same. I have often tried a bike and been completely oblivious of the major manufacturing flaws that the great unwashed bleat on about in motorcycle forums. Often I suspect one journalist from Pofadder fluffed a gear shift, wrote it up on the web and then the rest of the world thinks the bike has a  problem. 
The dog that caught the car. What now?

So there's already some speculation on advrider that the 701 might get the new duke motor next year already :drif:

I need to start getting my wife use to the idea that I might be buying a new bike next year!

From the web
- ENGINE
The brilliant LC4 showcases twenty-four carats of fun. From the trademark 690 cm³ thumper, the engineers have now extracted a whopping 73 hp (54 kW) and 74 Nm of torque, making light work of the equally lightweight 690 Duke. How it happened? They completely reworked the cylinder head, inserted a new, ultra light and extremely strong piston and connection rod, rerouted the air intake through a resonator chamber and provided the new crankshaft with new sleeve bearings. As a result, the powerband now is a thousand rpm wider, which means an even more uniform power delivery, especially in the mid to high rev range. Twin ignition featuring plug-selective mapping, rock solid but featherweight internals and optimized intake and exhaust systems cultivate this massive mono to be as strong as it is smooth, assisted by an advanced ride-by-wire system with three riding modes, which guarantees great refinement as well as low fuel consumption and emission figures. You’re green, while they’re green with envy. And you haven’t even begun mentioning upmarket goodies like a standard slipper clutch.

- NEW CYLINDER HEAD
Inside the new cylinder head, the exhaust valves are actuated by roller rockers while the camshaft powers the intake valves. Therefore, the ignition timings can be controlled with far greater accuracy. The result is more peak power over a broader rev range.

- SECOND BALANCER SHAFT
In a free-revving firecracker like this, you want to smooth things out a bit. That’s why the LC4 serves a bonus balancer shaft, nipping annoying vibrations in the bud.

Have read some comments from guys who have ridden the old and new motor'ed Duke and it seems the bike is much smoother with greater pull through the range

Thanks for this, seems the engine is now refined and balanced which should even improve reliability. The price is a bit steep but I think it is a rewarding ride. Light and powerful and quite a looker
