Yamaha debuts the MT-10


FZ-10Forum.com - The Largest 2017+ Yamaha FZ-10 Forum And Community!

MILAN SHOW: Yamaha's shock new naked R1 | MCN

The specs look awfully similar to the GSX-S w/ a few notable differences like a slipper clutch and multiple engine maps a la the MT/FZ-09. At £9999 it's comparable in price too.

Yamaha going in the right direction but just not quite there yet for me. I think Suzuki with the GSXS put a lot more thought into the small points like keeping things nice and tidy, no loose cables or massive gaps at the front. Not keen on the transformer looking headlight cluster either, I also think they will regret putting the oil cooler way down there, just asking to be cracked by stones thrown up by the front wheel, the purists won't like the older style up swept silencer and certainly not when it is fixed to the rear foot peg. : - )

I am sure older R1 riders will have brand loyalty and go for it but I for one wouldn't be giving it envious glances if it pulled up next to my GSXS at the lights.

Just saying : - )

Cool

Just when I thought I was close to making a decision this comes along.
Certainly will be worth a look with these specs, but am I patient enough to want to wait to find out.
And it is interesting styling to say the least.

I'm sure you'll find something wrong with it.... like the tyres aren't round enough or something.

Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, which would render me knee high to a snakes belly button
