Dont hold your breath waiting for an 890, guessing you havent seen the new 790????

Going by the video we have seen a 790 I think the 890 news was old & wrong or they changed to 790 either way

The 890 as they called it was supposed to be around 800cc. They called it the 890 because everything had a 90 as the last two numbers. 790 would have been more appropriate a name. Hm... isn't that what they are calling it now?

Not big on parallel twins but a 270 degree firing order and those look might be a consideration to get rid of the 1290.

Lean commuter.

This would be a far better commuter though.
