I read your post and automatically remembered an article in one of the newer Motorcyclist.
They are claiming the 2001 will have a 345 lb. dry weight, the bodywork redone to resemble the 750, the guage package similar to the 750s also. Engine very well be a destoked and smaller bore version of the 750, and will produce 115 horses, and best of all, fuelie!!
Can we say "watch out, R6... Suzook is back!"
