The Yamaha FZ-07 won Motorcycle.com’s Best Value Motorcycle award for three years running (2014, 2015, and 2016). Now, imagine that platform with a more relaxed riding position and retro-inspired styling. The Yamaha XSR700 does just that. Customizers will like that the tank covers are easily easily removable for painting while the rear sub-frame unbolts for customization. This bike has been available since 2016 in Europe, and we’re looking forward to throwing a leg over this new-to-the-U.S. retro roadster. Look for it in dealerships in October.

    Wow, check out the hipster.

    Those hard bags are nice! Also, since I have a two-year old, the balance bike looks attractive, but at her age, I think I’d rather see pedals. Kids need a way to burn energy these days!

    RE: KLX 250. Camo is SUCH a good idea for a little narrow street bike. How cool they’ll never see you coming…

    BMW dealers are dreading the $13000 electric scooter because most dealers are forced to lose money on the current scooter. The electric scooter will sit around for a year or more costing flooring until you finally sell it under invoice just to get rid of it.

    • Buzz

      At least the current scooter is practical.

      I test rode one a while back and it was easily the best handling scooter I have ever ridden.

      They are plenty of cream puffs on the used market.

      You’re right, this electric job will be a floor anchor at that price.

    Pretty slow expo.

    • Ozzy Mick

      “pron”, OldMO? Was that a deliberate typo?

      • Old MOron

        Yes, Mick. All the cool kids write “pron” over here. Some even write “pr0n” but I’m not that cool.

    Is that JW Speaker headlight actually new? I thought I saw something a lot like that on their website early this past summer.

    Twisted Throttle DrySpec Hard Bags are among the 10 BEST products?!? How?? They’re just Pelican cases with a new mounting plate. Is the Expo so lame that a simple rebranded Pelican case is among the “10 Best Products”??

    • therr850

      They might be Pelican cases but I currently have Givi mostly round cases with the front bottom corner pointed towards the ground. Everything inside slides to that point and when I open the case half the contents end up on the gound. Why would anyone design a case mount that the bottom isn’t parallel with the ground??

      • Kurt Beyer

        Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that Pelican cases are bad. In fact, lots of people have been using them years. And that is my point. This Expo was supposedly for new products. And these Pelican cases make the TOP 10 BEST. There’s nothing new about them at all — just rebranded to read Twisted Throttle, which, again, in and of itself is perfectly fine. But there is nothing about these cases that make them the BEST of Show. And that’s why I suggested that it might have been a lame show — kind of like when a slow news day will feature some mundane story.

        • therr850

          Please, don’t misunderstand. I was praising the Pelican cases. I’ve also had Krauser bags and the similar bags that came on the original Kawasaki Concours. Why we have to tolerate the bubble shaped bags is a mystery and then they get mounted with one end pointing down so everything inside slides into a heap.
