Will Yamaha bring it to the US?
Honda are fucking with Suzuki's all-purpose DL650 on the mpg front.
Looks like Yamaha will be fucking with it on the bhp front.
And cocking one at the BMW 800-series and Versys as well.
Was Europe begging for this after the MT-09 was introduced? If not, I'm confused.
With a couple more inches of suspension travel, this would make a pretty cool ADV bike!?
I would take it over the nine just because I like twins more than triples.
Lots of pics here:
I like twins better too. Make mine an MT-07!
Yeah i hope they make an fz-07. I really dont want that much power from the fz-09, but I dont want a gladius or a cbr500f, if i could find one.
401 lbs wet, 74 hp.
Its a start. Put a fairing and a real subframe on it, and we'll talk.
If it has more in common than not with it's triple cylinder brother it could be another fun and practical take on a naked street bike. If it comes to the states like the triple then we can assume salvage engines will become available eventually...it would be interesting to do in the States what Yamaha will not do for us and frankenstein a bigger dual sport or a smaller ADV bike (Tenere). WR700 twin or Tenere Triple, anyone?
The headlight looks awkwardly small...like a home-built (salvaged) naked bike, traditional perhaps.
My understanding is the new A2 license in Europe has a 47 hp limit and bikes with n00b fuel maps can't be restricted by more than half. This makes sense in that context.
Here, the Fz09 is already cheaper than the 650s.
Now you're talking! My Daughters CB 500F is 405 lbs (can't remember if that's dry or curb weight) & makes somewhat LESS than 74 H.P.. I don't regret getting the Honda, it's her first street bike & I don't want her on an arm stretcher but, DADDY is feeling a bit torn between the FZ-09 & FZ-07. That's a good thing though as the last few years a 650 Versys has been the only bike stateside that I even considered.
Could this be the spiritual successor to the SV650?
I can't wait till some enterprising press maven does a comparo of the following bikes:
Kawasaki Versys 650/Ninja 650
Ducati Monster 696
Triumph street triple
not sure Honda has anything in this class except inline 4's or the new 800VFR
and of course the new Yamaha MT-07
I'm pretty sure Suzuki would rather you bought the SFV650.
Not from what Ive read
I like your thinking, that would make a hell of a giant Supermoto!
