    There's a couple other articles out there with the same patents being filed. The biggest difference is the last two letters, i.e., if the new bike will be a F850GT, or F850XR, or F850RS.

    To me, it is a moot point, other than just the fun speculation side of things. No one will want my GT with 48,000+ trouble-free wonderful miles.

    I'd like to see an F850RS, but I suppose that probably the new F tourer will be an XR, or a bike like the concept presented last year at the design competition of Villa D'Este (Vomo), which made everybody thinking that the next model of the F could be a XR, there is a sort of a new segment of the market: the sport tourer with a high handlebar which is more similar to the big enduros than to the typical sport bikes. MV Turismo Veloce, Yamaha Tracer, BMW XR and KTM GT are clear examples of this new category that is replacing the old idea of the sport tourer.

    Well maybe in black because then one doesn't notice the lines of the bike, It looks like something out of a transformers film. Edgy and angular just because it can be?
    MEH!

    I think that the bike at Villa D'Este contest was an example of styling, probably a bike for the market would be a bit more conventional.
