New Cheaper Specialized Turbo

I saw on bike rumor a new cheaper specialized turbo in the 3k range. Anyone else seen anything else on this bike, i am interested. I rode the 6k version and loved it, but could never justify that kind of cash, but 3k range might work since i would cut my car commute. I am curious on specs, range, etc. I am hoping its the same motor just cheaper shifters etc. Thanks for any info

I got my answer and managed to see the specs. Torn on what to do. I want this bike really bad for my commute. The new cheaper version though has no regenerative braking, don't know if this is a big deal, as i only need to go the 25 miles or so on full turbo. Has a quick release rather then thur axel on the front, cheaper components, brakes, etc. Different motor number, i wonder what the difference is.

Do you have a link for that? The only one I could find was an updated 2014 version of the Turbo with a funky matte black paint job. Same price, bigger battery
