When you have a finite number of 9*0's on the market, and a new product with undetermined (but projected) success, that's pretty much it. They're hoping skies the limit (where they already see the limit on 9*0's) and while they may not have a vested interest in 1190 sales from a shareholder standpoint, the success of the 1190 has everything to do with the sales success of future products geared towards this model.

So in short. I agree. Fluff.

Full Body Crash Bars

I saw the Touratech stickers on the crash bars, Touratech may be developing some, but this company in Johannesburg, South Africa is who made them first.
http://www.rumbux.co.za/index.html I found this link a couple of months ago on a European ADV website. They sure look good. I just have to wonder if they are worth the extra 15 pounds.

Don't forget about the savings/profit from all the big bikes using the same engine. SP is all about sharing platforms these days.
