If they'll keep the weight down, that'd be awesome. 'Bout time, if it comes through.

Makes sense really. The naked bike is largely all new by all accounts - so give it a half fairing and decent tank range and those that fancy something practical and fast have another option.
It might spur other manufacturers to give the sports touring market a look..

There was a rumoured crossplane crank FZ1 a while back. Might be this project might give Yamaha a nudge..

Or the FZ-09 ST/AT bike. Light, torquey, and fuel efficient is nice. A lower price and Japanese convenience is too. Things to come...

It looks like it could be a fantastic combination of speed/fun and practical/comfortable. lets hope they have gone for the pricing model of the s1000r, which is relatively cheap.

Looks great in the picture.

If it keeps the electronics package from the s1rr, it will be worth the premium price.

I know I'm in the minority, but I don't care for all the electronics stuff on the new bikes. It's cool, though.

My sentiment exactly.

I wonder why more mfrs haven't cranked out half-faired (or abbreviated full fairing) ST versions of their naked bikes. It is the next logical step and will sell a whole lot better here in the States. As of now, the Ninja 1000 is the only player in the litre class lightweight ST category. Most others are either defunct or very nearly so from being out-dated.
