the wheels and engine are sweet, the tail sucks...slap on a nice modern, sleek tail with some leds (a la SV 1000) and an engine that puts out at least 200 hp and you are in business.

I am a little dissappointed. They could have done so much more with the concept. Instead, Yamaha kept the bike limited by previous concepts of how it should look.



It better make LOTS of power!

Default Street-Fighter-esque ?

Looks like what you would get if a Rune and a Speed Triple had children.

They need some Italians on that design team.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE lose that silly air scoop. I've allways thought the bike was more about that engine than the stying flares ala 1987. It was a useless piece of chromed plastic then, and I have NO idea why they feel its necessary now

Besides that I thoght it was neat

If they're going to use anything like that fake plastic air scoop, atleast make it functional..



Always been a fan of the V-Max other than some of the unnecessary fake styling ques..
