Didn't this come out 2-3 months ago? I feel shame for being the first to post on news this old.

I'd rather see less virtual sculpture and more real bike.

This has been going on for a few years with Yamaha, cautiously treading water with their VMax replacement. I don't know what they're thinking over at there, but there's only so much salivating over a tasty dish that people will tolerate before losing their appetite. You don't see other bike manufacturers like Kawasaki and Harley Davidson baiting the public with would-be designs. The element of surprise is very appealing here and once that wears off, the design starts to become a little stale and the desirability of the bike wanes just a little. Build it or get off the pot Yamaha!

So, Yamaha is trying to unseat the Katana and the F650CS for the "Most Alien Lookalike" award?

I've been sittin' around diddling my ***** for long enough over this bike, as mouthwatering as it is they seem to enjoy keeping it a concept so I've already decided to get a Rocket III. At least I can finally stop diddling my *****, it gets old after a while...



Bring the goddam bike to market already!!!

That's called jiggling the clam.

I've owned 2 (88 & 93). Although I work at a Ducati shop I will buy the new one when released. They are not a practical bike (that's what my K bike is for), but they are a blast if you know how their character works.
