Too many people here poo-pooing this before it's even ridden. Heck you don't even know what other changes are being made as well (ie. maybe it's lighter, less cat heat, comfier seat, whatever). Could be a real gem of an engine in an updated package.
Yes we know it's a change away from a twin. And we don't know the exact reason why yet. Could very well be emissions reg.
Wait and see what the end result is all I'm saying.
