Well, I can tell you weight is about 1000 grams.
Our size 56 measured just a tad higher, though that includes the hidden battery harness slot for Di2.
Olympia is a big company with a large R&D budget, so I doubt they are copying Scott or anyone else for that matter.
The bike is finished in Italy, but produced where most carbon bikes are, btw.
If you are a real weight weenie, wait till 2013 for a new lightweight model to be released.
The bikes share geometries with Scapin, so they are time-tested and I personally love the handling.
I've been riding a Boost with EPS and have been VERY impressed with the ride quality, which I initially feared would be way too stiff for me.
Here is my Boost (please excuse the build details, which are temporary):
And a pic of an Ikon with Di2 that shows off the hidden battery aspect:
Feel free to PM me if you really want one this summer, otherwise new colours will be announced in late July and then available for order.
