Specialized Diverge 2018 as a road bike?

It seems the new 2018 Diverge has good credentials as a gravel / adventure bike.

But what's it like as a road bike? If you were to put on some lighter road wheels with 28mm tires would it compete favourably with dedicated endurance bikes, such as the Roubaix?

I know that it's a bit heavier, and the Future Shock is set up for off-road use, but I'd be interesting in hearing how well it works on pavement.

Thanks!

John
