I'm liking the ideas that are popping into my head of what it could be, guess we'll just have to find out next week.

Really hoping it uses their cross-plane triple though.

Maybe something more street fighter-ish? Motard? Commercial looks cool.

From the rider's attire and ergo, motard would be my guess too. Yami already has streetfighters in the FZ8 and FZ1. FZ1 is getting long in the tooth and could be replaced soon, but judging by the recent penny-pinching 1/2 do-over of the FJR, that's unlikely.

675cc triple seems to be the calling card for Yami. Though nobody seems to know what da heck a "crossplane triple" crank is supposed to look like.

Hmm .. maybe Yamaha wants to get in on the little sport bike market... maybe a 300 or 400 cc bike to compete with Kawi and Honda.

Back in '08 when I bought my wr250x, I asked about a wr450x. Yamaha dealership told me they've been hearing rumors that one would come out in a year or two. But it never did.

That thing would have sold VERY well. Shame on Yamaha.
