Some new stuff coming, one looks pretty cool, one looks pretty weird, and there is competition for future MotoGP stars.

All is want is a 700cc Tenere that weighs around 175kg, has descent range and keeps the current cool loks.
There's a feeling I get
When I look to the West
And my spirit is crying for leaving

Why Is Yamaha wasting time and money building that trike thing,they should be focusing all attention on a nice twin DS bike .

Add about 150cc. A really good off-road suspension. With more than 95bhp.... and make it ... orange
