That actually looks much cleaner than its younger brother. Hope the fueling and suspension are sorted.
Looks a little like the SRX600, not that that is a bad thing.
That taillight looks like it was snatched from a '50s Powerwagon
This bike is on the Yamaha USA website. I think it's an interesting bike, but the crossplane MT-10 has the shit I really want.
Brilliant looking bike! Much better styled than the xrs700.
During the introduction of the bike it was noted that the bike has more metal parts(light weight aluminum, etc) instead of plastics, to give it a more solid and classic feel. That's a really cool thing in my book as I feel like a lot of new bikes today look and feel like tonka toys. The price is higher than the mt-o9 and it will probably come in a few pounds heavier, but the reasons seem justified.
Can't wait to see it and the MT-10 in person!
Like other have said, it looks a lot better than the 700.
I like, I'm interested
How right you are. Hot damn, call the undertaker. My life just became more complicated.
Regardless of the looks, I'd prefer this to the FZ09 on account that it comes with abs and traction control. Shame about the bargain basement suspension. If Yamaha US chose to bring this over the mt10...then they goofed. They should have just updated the FZ09 with the new tech, since they are both very similar, and both kind of ugly. No one looking to buy a Thruxton will be charmed by the looks of this thing.
I'm definitely a Rossi fan.

According to the US site, it's 16 lbs heavier, which sounds reasonable. I was hoping for a bigger gas tank, but it's the same 3.7 gal.
what the heck!!?? everyone was saying xsr-7. when'd they switch it with a 9??
OOoWeee! I like it, I like it a lot!
Not, however enough to sell my FZ09 for, but were I buying tomorrow and had to choose, I'd probably take the XSR.
Give it a Bigger gas tank, Yamaha!
Curious, what are the two small boxes on the frame where the scoops are located on the FZ-09? I always assumed the FZ scoops were faux.
Looks like air intakes, but blocked off.
