As the bike has been ridden for something like 1000km, I think I'm able to give a first update and ride report of the bike and a quick comparison with the rim brake version.
*this one behaves almost like all the Scott's I've had and loved: light, stiff, responsive and lively when out of the saddle, very good power transfer, also when seated
*maybe a result of wide 21mm internal rims, but the ride is more compliant than the rim version (same tyres + innertubes, but 17mm internal Bora 35's). A welcome +, as the ride of the rim version is on the very firm side!
*after the last updates (see lower), the weight difference with the rim version is a mere 200gr. Weight penalty is hardly felt. Great
*I've ridden disc's on the Endurace, so not mush new here, apart that lever feel is much nicer on the new DA levers vs old 785's. Also less lever travel. The occasional disc sounds in the wet and after a hard brake remains. Not much you can do about it I'm affread. But it's not a show or fun stopper.
*As mentionned in an other topic, the disc version is more affected by side winds. Reason is unknown, as the geo and the riding position is identical to the rim version. I will try the Sram centerline X rotors, and see if they catch less wind. In normal wind situation like today (2-3 bf), the stearing is calm and almost not affected. It's only in nearly stormy conditions like the last weeks that the bike is noticably more thrown around than the rim version.
On to the updates. Last week, a Superlogic seatpost with 15mm offset instead of 25mm offset arrived, along with a Berk Lupina 132 saddle in UD matt. Besides a more centered saddle on the rails, the real nice bonus is a weight reduction of 120gr. For an accurate figure, I weighted the bike without wheels (but with everything else like bottle cages and Garmin) and both wheels (incl TA's) separately on a 1gr accurate kitchen scale. Result : 6537gr
. Will post scale shots later on, as i didn't had the phone by hand when I weighted the bike. The comfort of the Lupina seems more than OK. Today's 130km wet ride was the first on this saddle. Will see after tomorrows 120km ride if the feeling remains postive.

It was already dark outside)
