On Treks website they list a 56cm SLR 9 at 6.1kg without pedals or bottle cages priced at AUD $12 999.00. This is with full Dura Ace and Bontrager Aeolus 3 clinchers. With pedals and cages you are looking at 6.35 - 6.4kg dependant on pedals.
In comparison my 2010 Parlee Z5 weighs in at 6.1 - 6.4kg ready to ride with SRAM Red and Enve post, stem and bars, Speedplay. Ti pedals, Arundel cages and Garmin sensor / mount.
Not much incentive there to swap over. Admittedly the Trek Emonda would be about 200g lighter with Tubulars and you could fit the one piece XXX integrated barstem found on the SLR 10 and save another 118g for a RRP of $599.
I will be test riding one in a week or two to compare how it rides and handles in comparison to my Parlee and Madone.

Agree, I'm just a Trek fan
. I'd have thoughts of putting Red electronic on this frame if it were a bit lighter than DA mech/Di2... That, link cables, lighter brakes, integrated stem/bar might just make it 13 lbs ready to ride - but at a hefty cost.
But other than a bit different feel and 50-60g, I have no illusions that this Emonda is tangibly different than the old Madone SSL. It's "old school."
I'll put up an actual weight when my build is done. It'll be very similar to the SLR9.
