After approx. 10 weeks lead time, Canyon shipped the 2015 Aeroad CF SLX to me two weeks ago.
Took it for a short spin today and took some photos.
It's equipped with Ultegra Di2 and Mavic Cosmic Carbone wheels, and damn is it a fast bike :)
Weighs in at 7.1kg with Ultegra SPD-SL pedals, bottle cages and the computer.
Frame size is XS (50cm).
Only thing missing is miles, lots and lots of miles... ;)

"10 weeks" you must have paid for VIP priority delivery. Love these bikes!

But why no H11 cockpit?

H11 looks beautiful and would surely complement the frame.
However, I wanted to be flexible about the whole cockpit, esp. stem length and handlebar width.
Also regarding compatibility to aftermarket parts, e.g. there is no front-mount for Garmin Computer, since diameter is completely unique (Canyon has announced they're on it).

That's a nice touch being so close.

I almost ordered one of these in December. I wanted the H11, in the end was told the geo wasn't particularly suitable for my biometrics. Decided not to risk it and bought something else.

I did however get in touch with a guy here in the UK that is 3D printing mounts for the H11:

Did you want a more upright position on the bike? Which one did you choose?

I had a Retul 3D fitting and the guy said my short torso and long legs were not particularly suited to the Aeroad. Had to take him for his word as I know nothing about geo and fitting. They had a programme which selected all the bikes that were suitable. So I am now the proud owner of a Colnago V1-R, a perfect fit with the addition of a 10mm spacer.
