2020 XR font
on: February 10, 2021, 08:36:17 AM
I have an Ice Grey 2020 XR Tour (Aussie spec) and something was pointed out to me that I now cannot unsee, I have a 2020 S1000YR!!!
The font on the red version doesn't suffer from the same appearance because the "X" is above the "R" and the previous generation has the "X" overlapping the "R".
Do I need a shrink to help me get over this?

Phew, glad mine is red.  That would do my OCD gene no good at all! :008: :018:

You could keep it like that and tell everyone it's a special YR model.

just put small decals "wh" in front of it, and "ed" behind it

That's what I've been doing within a riding group and now it's something we use on anything we mock.

I never noticed that before - just checked a red version and they are completely different  :046:

Looks like the mother ship put a similar XR on the 2021 "M" model...

Best,

Doc :151: :151:

Makes the Ice Grey even faster and more unique. The Red 2020 version very difficult to make out if even 1000 as tucked up on the other part of fairing  :164: :033:
As everybody has mentioned, seems a bit strange to have different decals etc.

I had a Yamaha Tracer 900, except mine was Tracer Goo.  They are just playing with our minds.
