I'll comment on the alloy wheels issue. One morning a couple years ago, beside the road near Chicken, Alaska, as I was replacing the punctured tube in the rear wheel of my travel-loaded F650 Funduro, I declared to Voni, God, and the world that I would never again buy a bike with tube-type tires (tyres for some of you) that had to be removed to repair. I don't like late 19th century/early 20th century technology. (Michelin, 1895; Strauss, 1911)
When BMW came out with the F800GS twin and F650GSreallyan800butwecallit650 twin I was almost ready checkbook in hand to buy an F800GS but didn't because of those silly spoked wheels and tube-type tires. On that issue alone if I do decide to buy one of these it will be the one called the 650 due to alloy wheels and tubeless tires.
I do understand that this will somewhat limit the bike's ability to be ridden off cliffs or through pot holes in Cleveland or New York City but I generally avoid doing that anyway.
