F800GS. I suppose they focus on new bikes. Seeing as my AT is my all round favourite, and in the same class, its not far off

Me too, and I also ride a X-Challenge.
Close enough.
Before choosing the XC I did my own comparison between various DS bikes. Factors I considered which weren't in this tool were:
 - fuel range
 - EFI vs carb
 - ABS (though not many people would agree with me)
 - happy button (too lazy to kick)
 - brakes (ços I don't like old bikes with drums)
 - weight
New bikes are (I think) all EFI and disk brake, so those can be ignored. Fuel range, happy button and weight remain kinda important though  ???
