Don't worry, it has cruise control so you can concentrate on cycling through all of them :-)

What a crock of shit, waited patiently for this. I am convinced they will never even get close to making a bike for me. Any other groundbreaking new bikes from the show?

You forgot this part:

"Tough spoked, tubeless aluminium rims"

I wished. Cruise control means nothing to me. I think I'll send my suspension in to
Dallara's guru and be happy for a little longer. At least they did some tweaking.

Question 2nd generation?

Are these the first changes since the bike was introduced in 2010?

If so, could one argue that the 2014 model will be the 2nd gen
for the S10?

This is a forum. Argue away. It's a tradition.
If it causes increased depreciation on the pre 2014 models then its a new model.
If your bike suddenly seems "so last year" then yes.
If life is just not worth living without 84 settings then Yes.

So what is it an S11?
An S10.5?
An S10MkII?
An S10/14?
An S10-e84?
Life is just so hard.

Now you know what Strom people are going through right now.

You got it on the first option.

Now have a one more bit of pricing leverage If I purchase the 2012 "1st gen" model that's still at the dealership. Although having 84 bits of leverge would be nice.

Well, I have to say that YAMAHA did their homework well. What the press thought was weakness, now it's resolve: gear indicator, abs shut off, ajustable suspension, ajustable wind screen, cruise control, heated grips....they did'nt change the cosmetic so we are going to keep good price for 2nd hand S10, and lets face it, the S10 is a f....nice bike!!!! Thank you Yamaha!! Good start for the 2nd gen!!

CC, ESC, new windscreen and adjustable? These guys are good, but I will wait for everyone to give it a go, don't miss the 570 lbs.
