Don't know about a game changer but certainly a breath of fresh air .

Is it aiming for this same type of catagory? Wonder what the price will be compared to the R9T.

I see the new tiger 1050 was also launched, from what I have read not to impresive....But I like the hornet look.... :drif:

The new street twin is also nice....

Went on a ride last night with 3 new 1200 Scramblers.

It looks MUCH better than the regular scrambler, proportion wise.  Kinda looks like an big old 70s dirt bike.
Ergos are really nice for sitting and standing. 
Dash is really cool, very customizable, different themes etc (something I wish KTM had built into their TFT)
It seems like it'll be a great "best of both" bike for guys into the vintage bike scene and a little bit of adv travelling.
(The hand guard aren't as strong as they look...Fit bark busters)

I loved the look and after a test ride had to have one. Compared to my 800 Tiger this bike is mad, so much fun to ride both off and on road. It exceeded all expectations when I went riding some dirt roads for the first time, so easy to ride nimble and all that torque is killer', I was able to go much faster than I would have been confident with my Tiger, and spent most of the time seated, it was just so smooth and solid, I was always standing on the Tiger, as it made me feel that I had more controll.

There was a issue with the heat off the exhaust, but after the de-cat that seems to no longer be an issue.

Will have to see if I can find a suitable luggage solution and screen before I get rid of my beloved Tiger, but this could just the the best bike on the market...for me.

So any one else's with one?
