...deliver something in the true Adventure category to compete with the [in no particular order] Buel Uly, the Katoom 950, Katoom 640 Adv, Katoom 640 Ralley, the rumoured BMW F800 "dakar" [uly-killer]. for my money, I'm leaning toward the beemer, if its for real, to replace two bikes: my XR650R and my V-strom.z I have a 650R and a vstrom (weestrom) too. There will never be one bike that can effectively substitute for both of these. The Suzuki is an outstanding street/touring bike and the Honda is an outstanding dirt bike. The twain shall never meet. One way or the other it will be a compromise.
