A couple of observations...

Several folks said this picture looks like the existing model. While they COULD have put the new engine in an old chassis for testing purposes, I would be skeptical that some guy in Spain would know it and snap this cell-phone picture.

1. The exhaust pipes seem to come out the front of the cylinders just like the current 1200.
2. That could be some sort of cladding around the "dual side-mounted radiators", but I doubt it. I suspect that would be difficult on a test mule based on the current bike's bodywork, and this picture makes them look too integrated.
3. That sure as hell looks like a double-sided swingarm. Can you make out a horizontal swingarm in front of the axle nut?
