The R15? Why, it's 14-better than the R1, and 9-better than the R6!

Seriously though, what is the small, rectangular "wing thing" positioned above/forward of the headlights? Tax-disc plate?

Small bikes are fun. Too bad Yamaha has probably Zero plans to bring this to the US to compete with the Honda of the same size.

Nothing smaller than a 250cc is going to sell well here in the US. Unles your just looking for a pit bike.

The CBR 125 seems to be quite the hit North of the 49th Parallel...

A 300lb 150. The mind boggles.

Either that or a location to mount a front license/number plate, which is the better bet!

And that would be the "Tax-disc plate" (or mount, rather).

Should Yamaha bring this 150 to the US?

If the industry wants to expand into the young demographic again, then yes, they should. Honda is selling their 250 here as fast as they can import them. Until this year, about the only sporty starter bike choice was the Ninja 250. Now there's 2.

If Yamaha can undercut the $4k price of the 250's by a grand or so, they'll sell a lot of bikes here.

hey, Columbia is not a country. Colombia is...

When it comes to making stereotypical discriminative comments you get it right the first time, but when it comes to actual facts, you suck at it...
