No, put a good suspension on it, a 450 watt alternator with a strong battery, a strong rear sub-frame, and let the price reflect the quality. Your desire for cheap junk will only get us cheap junk.

This place will melt down when that bike does pop up. The MT07 is one of the best bikes i've ever ridden for sheer fun and unbeatable for bang for buck for a new ride.
Hope the new XTZ will be much of the same.

This could be a worthy replacement for the 660 Tenere. Keep it close to 450lbs and maybe bump displacement to 750-800cc and I'm in. I love my SuperTenere but it can be a handful in messy situations.

This bike would give the BMW and Triumph 800's a really run for their money, just hope its really going to be built.

If it gets that heavy I'm not interested. I'd rather see it stay as close to its current 400 lbs as possible. Current power level is fine too.

Keep it simple and light, Yamaha.

When (not if) this bike turns up it will be a real V-Strom killer.
I hope for a quality product with all the right parts rather than a budget bike.

If Yamaha make it the bike I'm hoping for, it could very well be my next ride - unless the new version of the African Twin turns out even better

That would be sweet. Like the idea of a lighter 700 twin adv bike vrs the often talked about & said to be in the works 900 triple version. We shall see. If Yamaha uses the 700 twin it will be the bike Kawasaki should have built years ago but has not.

Translated the article with Google and it says Yamaha will release 15 new models this fall.

Using the 700 motor would make a more unique product, whereas using the 900 would just produce a Tiger clone. A smaller lighter bike is more likely to carve out its own niche, than a copy of something else would.
