KitchenAid - a "Leatherman" for the kitchen?

US based KitchenAid has announced a new foodprocessor. Looks as a non-flimsy tool, high WAF score; a kind of "Leatherman for the kitchen".
"Following up on last year’s introduction of the first food processors featuring a convenient, external lever for switching from thick to thin slicing, KitchenAid is expanding the collection to include models with an even more rugged die cast metal design".
Gadget oriented kitchen hackers may face a dilemma between the (otherwise obvious choice?) of the "authentic" Magimix with has both muscles and no-nonsense, old school charm, and this new american cousin, which actually also has a metal body (I was surprised to discover Magimix is plastic).

The product should be avaiable in the US in July 2012. Nothing about release for the viking segment in Magimix Europe or the rest of the world. No specs published, but probably similar to its predecessor.
