Now this could be interesting , according to motorcyclenews , yamaha are working on a 1200cc adventure/sports bike for 2009 ! could this be a realistic attempt at last from one of the major japanese manufacturer,s to take on BMW,s 1200 gs ? . i wonder what the engine layout will be ? could it come from one of their existing bikes, or will it be something entirely new . the plan,s are due to be shown in next week,s motorcyclenews , which is out next wednesday . if they show any pic,s i will post them here right away . i got this info from motorcyclenews , who send out an email trailing what will appear in next week,s edition .
