Thread: Interesting bike from Yamaha

  1. #1

    Default 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.

    Mud?

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

    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.
