Does Catrike have a 27 spd Villager up its sleeve?

UPDATE: Yeah... uh... The Villager has had a 27 speed option for a while now. This has nothing to do with the new Catrike model rumor. Sorry about that.

The rumor mill is currently grinding about news that a new Catrike is on the way. Believe it or not, I'm not usually privy to such tidbits - most likely because I'd spill my guts.

However, the 2009 Product Specifications sheet over at the Catrike web site does mysteriously list a previously unknown 27 speed Villager for a price of $1,750, bringing it up to the same price as a Catrike Trail.  The specs are all the same as the current $1,550 Villager with the exception of a SRAM SX5 twister shifter, Truvativ Touro Trip 165mm cranks, and a Microshift front derailleur.

Shouldn't be too long before we (as recumbent fans) get official word from Catrike on this, but the 27 speed Villager is looking to be the likely answer. Or maybe the Villager upgrade is just part of a larger announcement? Only time will tell.

Mystery Catrike? :: It could be as simple as a Villager upgrade. Though that would be disappointing.
