Just by looking at the bike it looks like they tweeked everything on it a little bit! I can't believe how much massaging they did!

Not even! The bars are different, the clutch pull is lighter, both triple clamps are totally different, the header pipe is stepped, the chain guide is smaller, the chain slipper is different, it feels lighter when you lift it, the bolts are different, the subframe is changed at the silencer mount, and, of course, the rotors are different. I took my wife up to a meeting near Chaparral yesterday so I killed an hour comparing the bikes side by side. They changed everything that was stated in the brochure and then some! All obvious improvements towards weight saving and performance!
