It looks like a well put together bike. Just need to see how the engine feels and sounds. Does the engine have a 180, 270 or 360 degree crank? 18 litre tank should give a good range, too

But what is it? Escape (X Cape)? Or CrossCape (X Cape)? Whatever, I shan't be buying one, I don't even use my 3½ enough now...;-(

Or perhaps the old man who finds that the Granpasso is too heavy... but hold on a moment, it weighs the same (roughly) as the Gp. However, the weight looks to be carried lower, the fuel economy is likely to be better, and we don't go over 85 mph much now anyway.

Need to wait and see how the ride feels - end of summer time and they should be in the UK, hopefully!

If there was a dealership nearer I would be keen to try one. It would have to be within approx 25 miles.
Was there fuel consumption data?

Not that I have seen. You'll have to wait for the journalists to thrash one then reduce the figures by 20%...
