View Full Version : Interesting bike from Yamaha

So maybe not to most of you but I kinda like this bike and applaud Yamaha for building it. $1400 cheaper then Triumphs Street triple and more torque and HP, it should sell. Pros..price point, looks cool and should be a hoot to ride. Cons....small fuel tank and you have to buy it from a power sports dealer. Oh yeah, that seat looks like a plank.

I'm with ya... and similar shovel junk on the back which is always hideous.

That looks great except the whole rear plate and light assembly. I'd hack that shit off as soon as I got home.

Looks like it would be a lot of fun to ride

This bike is centered on my radar. My next bike was going to be street triple but price point, I mean less then 8K. Can't wait to see it in person and a test ride would be a must. All in all it looks like it could be fun in S/E Oh.
