Good thing that we finally get some visibility. Apparently nothing spectacular on the horizon. Maybe better so, evolution rather than evolution. Personally I have already made up my mind : I will be sticking to my 2007 990 SD.

2013?? way too late imo, if a company doesnt stay on the 'forefront' of innovation they'll always be playing catch up... hate to say it

2013 would be good enough for me, that way I can pick up a nice 2ndhand low mileage one with some nice extras round about 2016 :twisted:

Hrmm, this would actually make me consider selling my SDR early next season while its still one of only a handful in Canada.... then wait for the new one to (hopefully) reach the shore.

Makes the older model more appealing IMO,, over the long haul,,,,,,,,,,insta-classic :!: gonna keep her until the day I die,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,could always add to the stable though,,,it may be the "latest" but that doesn't mean it's the "greatest",,,,,,,you may be dissapointed,,,,,and say,,,,I should have kept the old one,,,,,,,,,,,

You may be on to something there Maddog.

What we have here is one of the all to rare timeless designs. This bike doesn't seem to age....astheticaly that is.

I'd be interested to see if they keep the same engine config. Hope the handling stays... Will be a while before I can justify buying another - I love my 07 too much...

Only 7 pages and right at the top of the Hooliganism thread. Easy to miss I guess :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:
