 All the Japanese bike companies are screwed, because their Yen currency is jus't so bad. Here in Holland you pay 300 euro's more for an R version Triumph( that inclusies all the Swedish goodies from Ohlins)  than you would for the 2014 Zx6r Kawasaki. With the standard Triumph 675 being better anyway? It's not a hard choice. I would still buy Kawasaki, because I have green blood. You can buy an MV cheaper than a Jap bike FFS.

You can't pick your family..

Yamaha's 660cc, 100mph MT-03 is a bit of an underpowered wet lettuce which never really caught on here amongst the hard core with it's lilly livered power delivery and big girl blouse styling..

Did you know..it did remarkably well in Australia though and proved a big hit with our fumbling slow coach Bruce cousins - amongst the least skilled riders on the planet - who largely used them as a stepping stone to gay Ducati Monsters and Lambretta's.

The question?

For the price it appears to have the goods . But when you consider the MV 800 butale has the likes of Brembos , Marzocci and sachs fully adjustable suspension , the question would have to be asked ;Is it worth the savings to sacrifice the quality and that 10 odd extra horsepower the MV has ?  Let's hope they bring out a ohlins suspended version like they did with the MT01. Certainly worth a look though  . Yamaha seem to get the livability / maintenance aspect of their bikes spot on ,.... with a splash of character . The TRX ,MT01, virago's, V max's and the like pay testimony to that . I'm sure the 850 will be no different . 18lt tank option ?
