    Looks good but chain drive. Hope it is under 450 pounds and a seat height of 31" to 32'.
    We shall see the future.

    I'd like to see an RT or GT version in the F850.

    I'm flip flopping on replacing my F800GS with either an F850GSA or a R1250GSA. The deciding point is the 1250 would take the place of both my GS and K1200GT with a small under 450cc dual sport filling in the stable for closer to home back country exploring. On the other side of the decision, going with the 850 would mean keeping my GT for now with the plan of replacing it with a newer tourer in a couple years. The R-RT is not really what I want, but a smaller 850 version would be ideal. Maybe even a pair of them to replace my wife's F800ST too. The idea of having all three bike on the same engine platform would hopefully simplify maintenance and such.

    With a Scottoiler, chain final drive becomes a non-issue. Always lightly lubed, self-cleaning, seldom needs adjustment.
