The 610 of yesteryear was 140kgr dry exaclty.
The new one is 150kgr.
difference is 10kgs or 22 lbs.
loose the twin exhaust should you want, and the difference will drop at under 10lbs. No big deal.
PS the dr650 if I remember well is 160kgs true weight dry.
The DR weighs 156kgs with all operating fluids except fluid. The claimed dry weight (a pretty useless number anyway) difference is in line with what that of other manufacturers.
