I’m astonished that Yamaha have still to put the cross plane crank engine in what would be the Tenere,and Triumph has already allowed sneak!!! photo’s of their new 1200 Tiger that clearly has been shrunk in the wash  :008:

Only one thing. A XR made by Yamaha, with Yamaha reliability, pricing, service cost, no BM tax on add-ons. Why not Honda? Because Honda is very slow in catching up with moto trends, and arrogant. Why not Suzuki? Because aesthetics is just a word in their vocabulary, and slow as a snail in updating and creating dream machines (took ages to update their Busa flagship - maybe next year...)
I took out of the picture European makers because  product reliability isn’t key to them.

- Would've liked a wee bit more torque. 
- Less 'transformer- like' looking body panels
- Different color choices
- A more effective adjustable windscreen. 

I really don't want any more 'tech' on the bike...  I want to have to do SOMETHING
while I'm sitting there.
