Default new Versys for 2012???

Hello
while talking to a salesman in a local dealer, he leaked some information regarding a new Versys for 2012. He did not give any information but he mentioned gravel, gravel...
Anyone have some information to confirm this rumour or to deny it?
Regards
Latreto

I'm gonna rush down and put a deposit on one today!

On a serious note, it would be great if they took a Versys type motor and put it in an updated KLR type frame. If they just add bits to the current Versys, it'll be an ADV bike flop. It's too small for us super-sized Americans. I don't know if they'll do it with new motorcycle sales plummeting.

I'll believe it when I see it. Then I'll have to convince the wife that my '08 needs an update...

Well, we got the Versys 1000 up here in Canada. It comes stock with Scorpion Trail tires, so I guess that covers the "gravel" part...

Nice machine, but not what I was hoping for.
