Specs?

Can you euro guys interpret the spec detail and relate back to us Aussies ;)?

Is the extra tank capacity purely from under the seat ?

Colours ?

I spot a Garmin Montana mounted up on the screen and 2 tone seat cover.

Can't tell if suspension is increased?

Looks like the same bike as the 2013 F8 with a bigger underseat tank. Rest of the frame appears unchanged so it might even be possible to retrofit the tank as long as the subframe is the same?

Here it is in English:

Same suspension, 230mm travel.

This German magazine says they have changed the rear frame.

Didn't we already cover this in another thread. The pics are of a Wunderlich mock up?

In my humble opinion, unless the GSA version were to have proper high end WP suspension, it'd be the same crap heap with some decorations and more weight. Just what we need.

To me it looks pointless. More weight distributed at the rear. Why?

Some cool pictures of it on Facebook.

LukasM 05-02-2013 03:02 AM

2000 more for wider pegs, windshield, adjustable rear brake lever, bash plate, crash bars and the bigger tank....

I think I'd rather spend the money on the upcoming 2 gallon Camel Tank (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=872418) and buy aftermarket accessories that are significantly better, and save some money in the process.

It also looks like it has full house electronics or is that just the launch model ?

Snowy it doesn't have ungraded suspension nor does it have an 18 inch rear wheel.

It has the highly desired '2 tone seat' and a Garmin Montana GPS ;)

Oh, well then. Everyone will want one.

It's all about creating the impression of capability, according to the marketing gurus.
