I came back to this thread and looked at that one again. Great proportions, and I love the color scheme. Great pick.

Yamaha make 3 different versions of the 700 Raptor (Quad) so they might consider 3 different versions of the -09. Especially if it's a big seller (which the -09 surly will) & a lot of folks are asking about it too.

But does Yamaha know you're asking? Are riders, or potential riders, letting the corp know about it?

The Bolt has potential, just not as good as it could be from Yamaha

+1 I love that R12R, swappin for a MV would probably be a big mistake.

One of these, I don't care which. Just to have a radial engine on 2 wheels would be epically awesome!!!!




This time, practicality, looks or anything else don't really matter just that engine on 2 wheels! I'm a nut for WWII aircraft and if you don't know they were pretty much unanimously powered by radial engines.
