Imposition of 11 on X7 is possible in some acoustic conditions: 1. If the note is moved upwards by more than an octave; 2. If below it is the lining of perfect fifths - CGEBb / EbBbF play arpeggiato (broken) C / EBbF - Monk's style

What makes you think that Kawai will announce a new model? They'll do so if there is a business need. But given that the VPC has no competition, I would not expect a new model. Don't hold your breath.
