WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Fred, where did you source this information?
I think it means that you place an order by leaving a deposit?
My 2013 followed me home almost a month ago, still in the garage with zero miles and torn apart for powder coat, pipe, tires, etc. Saved $2970 off the standard model which will go a long way towards making it just how I want it.
Cycle World's announcement.
Well I was hoping for a white 14 standard model, that blue doesn't look bad though! I was also hoping the standard got heated grips. Glad to see them come with a center stand!
Now to decide between a heavily discounted white 13, blue 14 or a KTM 1190R....
I'm wondering if the US 2014 model will continue to have switchable speedometer, miles and Km as the previous models . Our 2014 again will not have miles, Y. Canada "Yep, the speed display is the same as last year ... only kilometres ... it is not switchable ... sorry (we are trying to convince the factory to give us the other speedo but we have not succeeded ... at least not yet. " ::)
A blue Standard with heated grips would be the one I'd choose. I like that they included a center stand.
Nice job, Yamaha.
I'm in the same boat, except I like the grey, which it seems I am in the minority. I am thinking a heavily discounted 13 with a flash will be much cheaper than the 14 and allow for a few extra farkles. I am waiting to buy until the 14 is available, with the hope of a good deal on a leftover 12, or 13, or a clean used find. Anyone in the Pacific NW trading in for a new '14 hit me up, it may be mutually beneficial?
My Yamaha salesman showed me the email from Yamaha USA. Dealer has to submit a bill of sale with customer phone number to order during the period from now until May 31 and they will be delivered in June.
Yes, you are right. In my earlier post about the standard model not having center stand and passenger hand holds, I guess I was thinking of the Euro standard, which does not have those things. Looks like the Canadian one is like the US one.
The Japanese get the bare bones thing - no nonsense and purposeful - the best tool for the job. I just wish Toyota would bring their stripped down Land Cruiser here...
So Yeah, nice job Yamaha.
If its bare bones you want then maybe this is what you need.
That has Deus written all over it.
If it doesn't perform like a sport bike, MCN doesn't like it. It also helps if the maker is BMW, Triumph or KTM. MCN is the last rag I would read for a review of this bike. They are so biased toward tarmac and top-end pull it's ridiculous.
"Our only complaint? We wish the ABS could be shut off for those occasional forays onto dirt roads."
From other sources, I've read that the ABS is off-switchable. Is this disabled on the stateside version?
Doesn't need to be shut off for dirt roads. I ride harder and faster with it on than I ever could with it off. Only time it needs to be turned off is sliding down a slippery, muddy ,1st gear downhill.
The ABS does not need to be shut off for dirt roads. It they are insecure about that then they should get a different test rider that can describe the performance accurately.
I OWN an S10 and agree for the most part, so please come out of the defensive posture.
I have read that the ABS CAN be turned off by other than trickery on the 2014 S10. Is this true or not? If you know for sure, answer.
Spare me the ABS can do no wrong arguments, because that doesn't answer the question.
