What's new in Thumpers?

I've been away for a while, but is the economy that bad that there is nothing new with thumpers? Any new bikes out there for us to drool over or criticize?

What's hot?

Atv's will run often with less than 6 psi with no plug issues... and multiple plugs in the same hole, etc... lifesavers in the bush.

G650x Challenge vs 450 Enduro

Seems to be a lot of info about the 450, but all about racing.
How would the 450 fair against the G650x for lighter touring duty.
Any thoughts?
