I guess I was doing a little bit of assuming, that there is a 3rd location somewhere in the seat/tank area like there is on the older models. Here's a pic to see what i was talking about.



At the least, they have 2 solid mounting locations directly to the frame, instead of 1 on the frame and the second on that little post that sticks up.



You can see there is only 1 bolt to the main beam of the frame, and the second on the little post that sticks up. Also where the gas tank bolts to.

A couple of good still shots of the standard and R, and another video:

I don't think the frame extends up like that on the new frame. I think there is just a fuel tank mount there. I know I've seen a naked frame shot of the bike somewhere. I'll have too look for it again.

The CycleWorld article says the new one has a steeper steering geometry. Unless you mean you modified yours to have the steeper geometry.

The way the bolts are placed, the bottom bolt acts as a cantilever action when stressed. Well, even just sitting on it. Maybe they fixed that problem.

Unrelated subject...look at the pics closely, they put the horn real low, like in front of the headers.

Does anyone know if it will continue to have a metal tank, or has it gone to nylon?

Yes it's still metal. I don't see them ever doing a plastic tank. Plastic tanks while durable have to be made very thick in order to meet safety regulations and therefore are typically heavier for the same size tank. I don't recall any current street bikes that use a plastic tank other then some dual sports. There are however a lot of bikes that have plastic covers that go over the metal tank.

My BMW F800R has a plastic underseat tank. But it's the only bike I can think of with a plastic tank.

Oops forgot about them. I shouldn't have I've owned two F650GSs. I've held several of those tanks in my hands though and they definitely prove the point.

For the sake of maintaining my omnipotent motorcycle ego I'll just call it an oversized enduro.
