Ego juice for executives at Polaris, or some misguided industrial designer at Victory?



A Yamaha Vision this aint!

This "Vision" shows a clear lack of vision. You won't be able to see the road anywhere near the front tire, in fact, you'll be lucky to see the car in front of you from the looks of the seating postion behind that UGLY what ever it is in front of the handlebars. I do like the CVT idea though as I have a screwed up left hand and at the moment I can't work the clutch on my vstrom. But I'd walk rather than ride that "thing" called a Vision even if they gave me one.

How much would it cos.....now thats a miopic question. Yamaha once had a bike by the same name. Remember what happened to that one? This, I know, is a little different. I'm sure this platform is a test bed of new ideas run it up the flag pole and see what happens kind of thing. Certainly unconventional...and how is the steering linked? The bars seem to be way back in relationship to the forks.

Their cuisers run with six quarts of oil and must be changed every 2500 miles(me thinks they are compensating for something), this one must need the oil change kit and lift to ride along?

Looks like the bikes in "Tron".



Not too ugly for a scooter, looks like good wind protection. I'd ride it, but not to the Rock Store!

Personally, I can't wait to pick one up. I'll finally be able to RIDE to the grocery store, and then ride home with a couple bags of flour and some milk stored above the front wheel.



Maybe I'll finally be able to bust out some stoppies!

Default i like it

If it was more 'squished' had more of a standard riding positing it would be awesome. I like it as it is, just i hate having my feet in front of me(instead of under or behind me)



Disc brake rotors look killers. Rear swingarm is awesom.



I'm all about the automatic.



What is pricing?
