The Babe & The Bike! - Good First Start...  October 11, 2010 05:50 PM
Love the old school black and white stripe on the tank, it hints at prowess from Yamaha's past. But from the article, it sounds like the mill could use a few more ponies to really impress. It should run like an XS650 times two, snappy and ready to rip, surprising unwary, sleepy riders. But instead, it appears that a a Suzuki V-Strom 1000 might eat it for lunch. Maybe Yamaha should attend a KTM planning session, or just don't assume that dual-purpose riders are so easy going. But, it's a good start!
