Agree with you. It will not lose it's appeal because of couple of pounds and a button. The retro market is a small one and why should yamaha shoot their self in the foot and make that market even smaller?

We are going to get them in Australia, apparently... I'm somewhat interested but I must admit I like my convenience and I would like to have the electric start, purity be damned. Kick start could still be there for show and as a backup. I had such setup on one of my scooters a few years back and I never used kick starter, not once. That's how I know jumping up and down on a lever is not an important part of the 'experience' for me.
