Bianchi is unveiling the new Oltre on the 17/7 on the restday of the TdF.

Nice bike, but it seems that the curved top tube plus seattube wheel cutout is a template many bikes are built upon these days.

Seems to be using the same mould as the standard Oltre, which has been on the market for two years. Shape is not "new", alas.
Btw Bianchi has no signature frame shape like Spesh (e.g), but a signature color.

2012 paint schemes are so much nicer! the only one that possible looks good is that black one. but it's trying too hard to be a bianchi oltre nero. the vacansoliel team version is still the best and a work of art

I agree on the paint scheme assessment, but an inversion of the black and white on the XR would be good. All that black against the Celeste makes it too stark in my opinion. There is also some weird stuff happening around the seat collar, as if they forgot that it's black.

Funny, I was in doubt wether I should buy a Bianchi for 2013 or not, the Oltre being a few years old etc. Now I really want one! Do you guys think it's possible to use previous version seatposts on the bikes? Don't care much for the black one...
