Anyone got any spy photo's of the new Intense M5?

Supposed to have a 2:1 shock ratio and only half a pound heavier than the Socom?

Will this replace the M3? What do you know about the "M5"?
I heard it's supposed to come with thru axle rear wheel using 78mil dropout spacing. It somehow combines the DW link with a faux URT and the wheel path of an ICT. It was actually a joint development between Horst Leitner, Dave Weigel and Jeremy Sycip.

Claimed weight for the new frame is 1.2 NM.

Travel in the area of 14'

In an interview in Decline some issues ago Jeff mentioned a M3 FRO with a 3.5" travel shock and a 2 pound lighter frame. 'Chris Kovarik will be race testing one soon' were his words, but in all the pics of CK from last season he was riding a 'normal' M3 with 1.5 head tube (team issue frame).
