I'm excited to see what the new Adventure 1090 R looks like now.

A really clunky data aquisition unit perhaps?
It's a Fahrvergnügen interface unit.

It's often used by German engineers to suck all the passion and riding pleasure out of a proto-type before handing it over to the bean counters for final approval etc.

When I saw the first "leaked" MCN pictures a couple months back... I thought; "yeah... them damned Bavarians have tricked the poor dumb-ass Mattigoffhonians into sucking all the Fahrvergnügen out of themselves..."

But these latest photo's show (at least a little) promise... looks like it has sprouted a 21" front wheel assembly... maybe they've had the interface unit on "pump" mode, during the latest testing phase... instead of "suck"?!!
