New bike or new paint? Look similar to the old reacto.

Looks like a few subtle differences. Seat post and front end from the looks of it.

Yeah seat stays, the headtube area on the top tube to make it flow with aero stem/bar combo (not a fan of this).
I would have liked to see the brake put back on top of seatstays but I guess they want to keep it as a trading mark (plus probably difficult to figure out the cable routing).

Looks like we finally have some info. The new disc model looks great I reckon. Cool feature being the disc rotor coolers. Big claims on the 35% cooling.

The older Reacto was fairly slippery in testing, so I'm interested to see if this new model is an improvement.
