Not impressed. Maybe when I see one in the paint...

Lines don't look right. And the OB/GYN ergoes, c'mon!

Very good looking bike with only one glaring problem (if we forget the midget engine): that gawdawful upwards pointing tank position that harks straight back to the era of Viagra sorry Vigaro XV1100 and Intruder 1400. Apart form that very nice and even nicer considering the money. Like a good looking hooker with one tooth missing.

I think it looks a lot better then the Honda faux-choppers. And the substantially lower price makes it even more attractive.

Why is Honda in business?

Um, I'm not sure that was the vision Yamaha used for inspiration, but it is an amusing metaphor!

Do I smell a chopper comparo in the near future? Put the Yamer in the ring with the Fury, add a dash of Big Bear and let 'em go at it, cage match style!

Not sure about the Big Bear, but there will be a comparo.

It looks like an old Suzuki Intruder.

Ick.

This is the kind of bike I currently ride, and it's the kind of bike I love.

I guess that makes me the target demographic.

To me, it looks less cartoony than the Fury.

And, it's not a huge, overweight barge like the Raider, the VTX 1800, or the Suzuki M 109, let alone the Vulcan 2000.

Since when is 1300 cc's a "midget engine"?

I like it.
