The production bike shouldn't stray too far from THIS!

I have been debating looking into a Multistrada. I just might wait and let this play itself out.

That does look like a pretty sweet bike. I can guarantee that it will have nowhere near the horsies that a Multistrada has, but it won't have the astronomical price tag either. And that said, I couldn't care less about Multistrada HP. This Strom will have more than enough for my taste. Even my 650 has enough for my taste.

Not to sure about the beak. It just doesn't have that Strom look to me.

That looks fantastic, but being a concept things may change a lot still. I like the dual headlights on the current bike over this single lamp here, unless this is two lamps close together?

I quite like it - beak and all. Nice to see them stick to a thou rather than be tempted to go bigger - I know I don't need any more mumbo for what I do on the Vee.

I just wonder if there'll be two versions - one a bit more off-roady...

'08 Vee: Suzy luggage, Crash bars, Rad Guard & front mudguard extension, Zumo 550, Oxford Hot grips, Stebel, PC-8, 12v acc, Scott oiler & lube-tube, Remus Revolution Cans, Bark Busters, Phillips Extreme vision +100 bulbs.

'08 Concours 14: Rad guard, Stebel, Oxford Hot grips, Projekt D Screen, Hugger, GPS mount, helmet locks & front guard extension, Zumo 550, Stebel, Phil's rack & Givi V46, Sheepskin seat cover, Phillips Extreme vision +100 bulbs.
