Vid has an urban vibe - so i'm guessing a take on the Street Triple.

More info June 11th.

That is one strange commercial. It sure doesn't give much info.

OK, from what I'm finding it's a new R1. They need to make it more narrow and are hoping to compete with more displacelment, maybe 1100cc's.

Doesn't interest me, but maybe 4-5 years from now they will make a nakie version.

This is not the first rumor I've heard that Yamaha is going to make all their sport bikes triples -- I remember reading something about it Sport Rider (I think) a while back. Apparently the triple engine configuration suits the goals they have for the brand much better -- narrower, lighter bikes with characteristic torquey motors that can also scream when desired.

Personally, I like the idea -- I have NEVER been a fan of I4s in motorcycles, with the exception of the old air-cooled Hondas from the 70s and 80s. The current crossplane crank in the R1 is pretty neat though, but it's not doing to well in competition (not that I care, but Yamaha does).

Speaking to a Yamaha rep last week, he reckons it'll be a naked middleweight -somewhere between 650 and 800 cc. Huge market here in 'yerp.

That'll be the first in a range of bikes.

Wouldn't mind a 3 cylinder FJR..

Yeah, that WSBK championship in '09 and the 3 straight AMA superbike titles and the world endurance titles and MotoGP titles don't count I guess.

I think the new thing will be a crossplane IL3 with very spare, retro styling like the Bolt, be fast and affordable. All manufacturers need to get some new riders into the game. The higher end variants will drop later, R1, FZx, etc.

Looks like they are shooting for the "I wear my pads on the outside of my clothing" demographic? I though Suzuki had that locked up with the GSXRs?

Please be a at least semi serious 350cc triple!!!

I'm probably thinking of something else. I don't follow motorcycle racing. My bad

maybe it's just all blacked out models of existing bikes?
