Sexiest Japanese bike ever??? Of course it won't come to the U.S. for years, if ever.
i've ride a MT01 last week.... is like a R1 with a VTWIN 1700CC engine...
Wow that is very sweet.
Are those muffler-fenders or fender-mufflers on the back?
So, we'll never see it in this country.
Y'all realize that this bike here is one-off, right? This is a designer zooted out version of the production Yamaha MT-01. Numbers 'produced': 1.
I hope barbasma will decide to tell soon.
P.S. By the way, there's no MT-05 in Yamaha's lineup, here or there.
Yea, uh thanks Airswim. I don't know how we would keep up
If you're into this sort of thing, you might wanna check into the new Triumph Speed Triple, the wildest looking production bike available, here and now.
Uh, yeah, I...Know, I'm kinda slow that way myself.
Yamaha built a one off uglier XB12S. Not for me.
I don't think that's a Yamaha built machine.
We're still waiting for the details, barbasma...
Here's another bold design, the 2006 VFR, the best-looking VFR ever, me thinks.
Naw, the '94 series bikes looked much more like THE best looking VFR, the NR!
The pics are from an Italian website, I don't understand a word of it....bummer
The most beautiful engine in the world is the v-twin
Airswim, since this isn't JoMama, I keep this short. Your design judgement lacks parameters that encompass good taste.
Well, could you name a couple of production bikes that you like so that I might get enlightened. You obviously know enough to pass judgement, so you tell me the bikes you like the design of. barbasma seems to have abandoned the thread and this is really not too far off-topic. So, no worries, I imagine it could only get better from what you've already posted here. "You've got no taste, Airswim", now that's off-topic already!
I just stumbled on this, mystery solved. That's the factory concept MT-OS that's currently in the Yamaha's show-circuit line-up, much the same way as the concept Vmax. Here's some pix of both bikes:http://www.gizmag.com/go/4778/gallery/
Well, I kind of took a nap on this, but if pressed, on the production bike front, MV Agusta 1000. The ultimate in sports bike beauty, to my eye. In the naked realm, I would have to go with the MV Brutale. Refinedd agression, from the master, M Tamburelli. In the latter part of the 20th Century there were none better.
Cruisers, I like the new art deco yamaha star. Goes off in its own direction, while hewing to the stricures of the cruiser mentality.
V-Twin wacko- Confederate Wraith. It is just pure elements wonderful design.
On/Off road- KTM 950: No wierdness for the sake of wierdness, just what it claims to be, an off road bike with some street manners. Don't like a hard seat? You're not suposed to sit in the P-D, laddy, get riding.
What stung when you picked the VFR as the best looking sportster was its lack of heart. Honda does a couple of minor changes and this is it ?
We vfr heads were waiting fo the v-5 900 or 1000. Instead we get stupid pearl paint and redone turn signals. It wasn't so much a reaction to oyu, as it was to Honda failing to make the big, brave move.
