Not to change the subject, but to do it anyway, did you see the pix of the new 690 (or 650) on this web site that came from a Dutch source? A lighter LC4 with electric start only, potentially dual OHC a la the 250 RFS setup (& the new 450/505), flipped countershaft sprocket, etc.? If it is lighter with more torque and a bit more power it would be a great DS. The first version is supposed to be a supermoto due in the shops in Feb. '07. There is an adventure version due later, as in late spring/early summer. It will come in the new trellis frame as well as per current race configuration. That has my attention....
