WOnder if it weighs any less.

Don't care for a 5-speed, but I guess for $9k, and you don't cruise the interstate often, no big whoop.

May turn out to be a seller, think they have plans for it perhaps in Racing being a notch below 1,000 cc .. Weight is the same, just about all is the same as the 1133 other than 5 Speed, Displacement and Price ..

It actually weighs a few pounds more. I guess the gears are beefier and the cylinder sleeves have more metal instead of being bored out to the larger displacement.

Might be a rugged bike. Just because it's a 5 speed doesn't mean it won't cruise the freeways at 80. Just depends on how it's geared plus this engine has a wide rpm band so running it at 4k rpm is no big deal.

I remember when HD went to 5 speeds from the long time 4 speed gear box. Everyone was saying it could cruise 95 mph all day. That was an exaggeration but it could cruise 80 all day.
