Careful now, I read it has a PMS motor - which, coupled with the CPU will stop the bike at the most-inconvenient location to point out what you did wrong six years ago!

Do they make mention somewhere on suspension setup - length of travel? I just want to figure if it will be any good (better) than a NC on dirt roads.

There is going to be a 490 twin ADV coming so not so sure the 390 will be a better bet except on price.

Near future is all that they said. If it can be a 55hp (390 single is 44hp I think) 490 twin with 21/18 wheels and 145kg weight it would be damn close to the ultimate DS bike. Oh and make it better looking than the 390 / 790.

Most of the new release rumors start off positively and by the time it's released we get something completely different  :lol8:
