That will be interesting for sure.
The Street trip is a great bike, excellent handling, perfect fueling, great suspension. Thought to beat

I've owned a '06 FJR and currently own a Super Tenere, on both the fueling was piss poor, really sucks on the S10. Hope Yamaha gets it right on their new triple and the new twin.

That was a no-brainer for me but I was ready to buy, when my low-mileage StR hit the market. If my buying window was later in the fall, I would for sure test ride both. The StR is a deceiving motorcycle, as it's quite tame under 7K rpm but it becomes a different animal, 7K and beyond. The only negative I have about the StR is the poor mpg and the limited luggage options. Luggage and practicality is where I expect Yamaha will shine, in the middleweight race.

I'm thinking twice about the deposit I put down. I remember when Yamaha re-did the FZ1 in 06. Fueling and suspension was a joke. Yamaha changed both in 07.
Not sure what to do now?

This is true, the FZ1 fueling was a nightmare, one of the reasons I chose the bandit 1250 back then.

But I am sure you will hate your new FZ9; you should probably just let me have it.

Don't care, as I would put a pipe on it anyway and I know a wizard tuner with a dyno!

Or a leftover FZ8 - they should be going dirt cheap soon. The suspension and exhaust can changes for 2013 have the reviewers singing the FZ8's praises. And imho it is a much better looking bike than the FZ9 and has a more properly slightly aggressive riding position, as well as a bigger tank (and of course more weight and a little less power). I rode a Str3 R at a "fun" dealership and loved it but realized I would almost certainly lose my license -- that bike just demands you ride it aggressively and fast (far more than my old CBR 600 does).

I guess I'm like everyone else; I want to see a FZ9 in person and maybe snag a test ride.

Two full days with no interest in the coolest bike coming down the pipe? Shameful.

This seems to happen on most all "soon to be released" threads. With no ride reports, no accessories available, the same pics and specs being shown in magazines, etc, there's just not much new to talk about, here. Once available, this will hopefully be a hot spot of conversation about the FZ/MT... Couple of more months, I hear... dd50

Sadly the new triple isn't $8000, it will be about $9300 or more after the dealers gets is d*** out of your a@@. Plus tax on the full amount as opposed to telling the DMV you payed whatever you want to from a private owner.

Used street triple are really hard to find becuase people love them so much.

Nature of the "purchase of any style vehicle" beast. Seems everyone wants a piece of you. Taxes, you can't change, but delivery, set up, paperwork, documentation fees are normally all negotiable if the item is selling for MSRP, which happens a lot with motorcycle sales.

BTW, in Texas now, you can't give any purchase price, even with bill of sale, that doesn't match their price guide lines when paying sales taxes. I paid more tax than my purchase price required on a bike, last year. No negotiation, "you owe us this much", period...

Was anyone else who has seen this bike in person left with the impression there is no ground clearance? I saw it at Laguna Seca, and that exhaust system looked awfully close to the ground to me. I thought maybe they just had a lowered one on display, but every one I looked at was the same.

Doesn't look lower than the 6N. Had one of these and they were fine over street bumps, etc. I checked several sites but FZ GC wasn't noted on any of them...

The black wheels on the black bike look better, IMO. The bike definitely needs a fly screen to smooth out the deformed look above the headlight. For some reason I expected the bike to be big but judging from the pics, it looks smallish.

Thanks for the link. I can't wait to see one up close and personal.
