    You right the 990R is an incredible bike but I think KTM is going to launch a new one to the end of this year. Perhaps in two years when it finishes the guarantee of my ST and the new KTM showed its skills…. :evil
    From now I’m enjoying a lot the Yam… better than I expected :clap

    Hola Thagua
    I like the Yamaha design without the duck beak. It seem as all the “adventure” bikes must have a beak, but I think this part could be better finished that it is in the ST.
    But I like your’s
    Hasta luego!

    Give your idea of a better 'beak' and I will try to do it ... I think the purpose of the beak is to make your front end go down when on speed (over 150 km/hr) making the bike more stable ... also hides all the ugly wires, hoses and horn.
    Saludos,

    Thagua, I like the look of the beak, it fills the void under the headlight. Keep up the good work! :clap

    Where do you find a “Beak” like that?
