Biggest catch is it's only good on two models. Add the FJR to that list (and the cruiser bikes for the bad ass, balding proctologist crowd) and Big Daddy Yam might have something for the US....

Let us Ponder this deal It seems a good deal especially for us older guys that have grown into a sort of sanity but I think this deal is meant to attract the younger crowd this is bad as they don't know or understand the scam that is being played on them of which I mean some 18-22 yr old goes and buys themselves an R1 I'll bet that the bike doesn't last 5 years not for lack of build quality but because this guy will either A) Crash said bike and find out that his insurance wont pay off the full amount due to depreciation B) Do what we've all done and drop the thing and bung it up and not have the cash to fix it because of his exorbatent moto insurance and payment but can't sell it because he has no money to make up the difference in what its worth and what he owes. The sad part is that eithter this punk will tell yamaha to come get the bike or his parents will bail him out. Either way he shouldn't have had it in the first place. Don't get me wrong the kid could be smart and by the fz-6 and come out ok but I doubt it. This trend isn't just young guys I've known a few older guys with wifes and kids and mistresses and a house payment and an apartment for the mistress three car payments do the same thing with a harley thinking by riding a harley they will relieve some of there stress of paying all these bills and having to screw both women the first his wife so he thinks she won't be suspiosus and then the 20 something mistress so she will think he is a stud. Poor shmuck doesn't realize his wife knows and doesn't care because she has the mailman and his mistress doen't care because she only puts out so she can live in a free pad with a free car. I'm done

OK bod, I'm pondering. Are you commenting on the finance deal, the people that buy motorcycles, the difficulty of balancing a family, mistress and car payments, or something else entirely? Kind of hard to follow your rant. Maybe some punctuation would help. And better meds.

"I'm done"

I hope so, reading that made my brain hurt.

More simply put...Houses are financed, toys should be purchased.

Yada yada yada. Cut through all the PR bullshyt and all this tells us is that the sales of these two models is lagging badly.

Ah, a delight to read the comments from one who actually understands that there is a MARKET out there.
