Deso Bianchi have similar Hybrid like the new TREK 2011 Dual Sport?

Trek has a new hybrid/sport bike called the "dual sport" which looks like a great bike
for light mountain biking and road use.

http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/town/dual_sport

I was wondering if bianchi (preferred) or any other brand for that matter has something similar in the $500-$600 range, which can offer both decent off-road and street use in 1 bike?

Thanks

1. Trek's new dual sports are rebadged Gary Fisher models that have been around for a while.
2. Looked at the Bianchi site and it doesn't appear they have an offering.
3. Giant has the Roam, Specialized Crosstrail, Scott Sportster... it's not a new trend, just a new marketing blitz.
