Easy, do what I'm gonna' do: buy both (If, of course, they turn out as hoped.). You just have to commit to the cause.

Paulibiker, if the fairing, etc is really what you want in your next purchase, maybe hold off on the FZ purchase a while to see what is coming.

Notice what Honda did with both the new 700 and 500cc twins platforms. They are making something it seems for everyone with the two, and state that more are to come soon. If Yamaha has taken the time to develop and produce both a new triple and a new twin engine, there will assuredly be several platforms coming for each engine, too... The new world wide model mode the manufacturers are entering, as of late...tp

A fairing isn't a big deal, extra fuel capacity & suspension travel would be nice.

Or course that adds weight & cost.......

We talk about wanting lighter, more powerful, more upright bikes that are reasonably priced and reliable, so we need to reward the manufacturers who answer the call.

Same Luca Bar Design concept, but in yellow. The front end doesn't look quite so disjointed. I'm sure Yamaha designers will make it right...

I liked that color too, DirtDreamer. It looks great (and I mean GREAT!) on the bags, but it still doesn't fix the front end. I'm hoping Yamaha will, and I know it's considered blasphemy here on ADV, but I'd be all over a fully faired version.

Hey, this is the Road Warrior section, and fairings are OK here. tp

I like that design a lot, altho the seat needs work if it's to be
any sort of 2up bike.

The plastic in front of the tank is key to good weather protection for this tourer.
Oh, are those head lights from the Triumph speed/stree triple, WTF!

Check post 46 page 4, You'll see that the head light looks like an ST3 from the side, but is actually a curved one piece unit....
