Don't know if this has been mentioned or not, but I heard from my local shop that the Pro-level bike should be dropping in the next week or two.
This news was in Bikeradar couple of weeks ago: https://www.bikeradar.com/road/news/art ... isc-52305/

that's not the "pro" version.. i think it looks more like the "elite disc" version, but it's still not listet on the specialized website.

What is the Pro-level bike?
Specialized usually labels their different spec levels within a specific model as follows base, sport, elite, comp, expert, pro, s-works... with base representing the lowest spec model and s-works being the highest spec model. The specifics for each model differ but generally speaking, a "comp" is usually a 105 level bike, "expert" is usually Ultegra mechanical and "Pro" is usually Ultegra Di2 or sometimes Dura-ace mechanical (although I haven't seen that in a while). The different models usually have different specs of carbon fiber as well, with lower end models using a lower grade of carbon, either 8R or 9R, going up to 10R or 11R or 12R in the highest end of the range. The lower grade carbon means they have to use more layers to aceive the same desired stifness, which results in a heavier frame. The peripheral components also change as well, from low end, aluminum axis wheels up to roval cl and then finally clx carbon wheels... same thing goes for seatposts, bars, etc.

Do they sale lower grade frameset as well? I really don't need a full bike and don't want to pay for S-works.

My local shop just built up a custom SL6 disc for a customer that wanted it completely bare carbon. They took off all of the graphics... Red Etap, with Enve parts, etc. I think the only stock remaining parts are seatpost and crank. 13.3 pounds.
