It shouldn't be any more than the current Orca. When I asked they said: "about the same". So around $2500~ish US. Take it for whats it worth........ It does look better than the current incarnation, thats for sure. Less 'organic'. That goofy seat tube, top tube, seat stay cluster has always looked funny to me but........... not anymore :D

that is a vast improvement over the old orcas. hopefully the larger sizes still look as good-- the old L and XL orcas looked as pudgy and brutish as their namesake.

I think it looks a little funky but I think your either an Orbea fan or you aren't. Not much in between with Orbea.

It should be in the 900 gram ball park also. Looks cool.

Those dropouts look huge! No weight saving there. The frame looks great, should have a very stiff BB area.

Despite the fact that even a Trek looks great with Record and Boras, this frame is likely my next.
