Saying it is what I want is not exactly right. I'm saying what it would take to compete with other 800cc ADV tourers from a feature standpoint.
I think your concept is neat. My guess is it would be hard to get it much less than 400lb unless you make it really minimal more like a ktm 690E instead of a adventure.
The 640adv was around 350 dry...
