I hope so. I expect that it will be and I hope it is before winter 2013.

I am fairly certain I will buy one of these with the retracts.

Which retracts are you looking at?
That could make for a nice package...

Any speculation on motor choices?

I want this puppy bad. Hope they bring it to the US. I looked at the UK store and the price nearly doubled with shipping. It would also be nice to get it with the retracts system, but that doesn't seem to be available.

Although retired, the former designer of Multiplex still works as "freelancer" for MPX and designed the Solius, i.e. the Solius is the only real novelty here.
