Scott sporster P series I was impressed

hello was in the lbs last week and saw one of these-

http://scottusa.com/product/74/699/sportster_p6

forgetting the old steel v's alum argument does anyone have any thoughts about touring capabilities. It is less than half the price of any touring bikes in the lbs here. The frame seemed a very well thought out and strong design, and the optional disk break mount was inside the rear triangle, almost eliminating pannier problems. The chainstay lenth was 450mm or 17.7". I was very impressed with the frame design. but the price was impressive too. It just seemed a really well built frame for the money.

so is it good or am I easily impressed?
