good attempt

what is it these days with ignoring the pillion seat comfort on bikes like these.....for that reason alone i wouldn't even test ride these style bikes let alone buy one. Either give it a proper seat or don't bother with one at all. Other than that the bike looks well and at the price it should appeal to those with no pillion friends. The 675/1050 triumph triples will run rings around it and are well established so this will have to have a few tricks up it sleeves and they better hope it does better in sales than the FZ8 which are being given away and have no trade value.

Grammar!

To quote; 'Now Yamaha wants the world to understand its back'

I'm no Chiropractor or or a doctor of Osteopathic medicine, so it may take me a while.

Perhaps the use of an extra apostrophe wouldn't go amiss somewhere within the article?

Come on Mr. Newland, here's one for free!

Of all the types of bikes Yamaha could unveil their all new fancy triple engine theyve been banging on about for a while, they do it on some hokey chinese looking parts bin special, and not (what everyone really wants to see) a 675 sportsbike to rival Triumph. Like anybody on earth cares about a bike like this, they already have the fz8? Yamaha seem to think they can make substandard bikes with gimmicky engines that make a different noise, and expect every man and his dog to get exited..nah. Bring back the Yamaha of 03 please.

I have just got a NC700s and an loving it and was interested to see this Yamaha. yes it has  twice the bhp and is 23Kg lighter, but will it do over 80mpg hold a full face helmet in a fake petrol tank? Also the NC has 44ft-lb torque to the Yamahas 62ft-lb. but hey all this is just numbers i would have to see how it rides really and have really got used to the storage on the honda as am using it for work and have not bothered to get a top box after all.

Wow, after all this waiting and they release a bike that looks like any old generic bike you see on the streets passing you by.

It doesn't even get them into the A2 license categories, so essentially the bike is for a market that already has a footing anyway. Newly designed gearbox.....Yeesh, let's hope Yamaha don't do another 1998-2002 YZF R6 tranny screw up on this bike. Yamaha's gearboxes are clunky enough as it is, I imagine this one will sound like a shotgun being fired.

It's ashame, I really like Yamaha, but what a piss poor first release attempt on their new triple cylinder technology.

worried

wow, I was worried about getting a new street with yamaha waiting in the wings.... at least I can relax now because this looks shit.... Im certain the engine will be great but whats the point if I would rather be seen riding my granny than an mt09. Yamaha really DESPERATELY need to get a new designer in because this is CRAP.
