Seru,

I'm still saying the Adventure will be roughly 800cc, and a long-legged version of the Street Triple.

The other one ('Tiger Cub?') has got me curious.

They might be following the KTM model of offering a Supermoto and a DP bike that are substantially the same, but tweaked for their respective use.

Ha! Paid cash for the Tiger.

Even if the new Trumpet comes in at near 400lbs it's still too heavy for real off-roading. That's what I have the DR400 for. 99% of the people who buy these things have no intention of taking them off pavement anyhow.

That smooth triple will make the 1200GSes feel and sound like tractors. And the triple smoothness vs the buzzy F800 will be a deal maker. Never mind how outlcassed the Japanese 650 twins will be.
