Looks to me like they were going for the "Poor Man's KTM Adventure" look, after the 2008 model went for the "Poor Man's Ducati Multistrada" look.

Something I just noticed too, since the front turn signal lamps are mounted higher, if you take a look where they would be on the '08, there is now an empty notch begging to be filled by PiAA driving lights.

I had the same impression about the BMW GS800 influence on the new styling, color scheme, mirror, rad shroud, headlight and windscreen changes, even its mirrors... Interesting observation about the higher turn signals too.

I don't mind the new style, color scheme, mirror and rad shroud shape, headlight and windscreen at all, but what inspired them so...?
