      no not that we know of soo far. they do have that orange and black coming back on the bonneville's, and seems like it's farewell to the daytona. The new model is coming out halfway through the year next year.

      I read too many forums. Saw you post these photos elsewhere...

      Looks like a damned nice bike no matter which forum it's posted on!

      675's won't be produced for much longer. redesigns are due in 2013. my tip is if you want one go pick it up asap.

      tubless tire, yes (those tires can go on non spoked rims). do you have and require tubes inside those tires on your rims. also yes. so in the end yes you have tubes.

      Yes, spoked std wheels means tubed tyres.

      You can get aftermarket spoked wheels that are constructed in such a way as to support tubeless tyres, but that's a whole other story.
      It's a "tubeless" tire,but if you have don't have the cast wheels,there is a tube inside the tire.
