BMW built a 800cc parallel twin. Notoriously bad front suspension, around 210 kg and 60 odd kW (compared to 220kg, 80kW KTM 990).

Honda promised an 800cc light weight parallel twin in the new AT. It came in at 1000cc and more than 230kg.

KTM promised a 800cc parallel twin - still outstanding. Got distracted, bought Husqvarna and remade the 690 into the 701 single.

Now Yamaha promising an 800cc parallel twin? Wonder how this one will go...  :sip:

I just saw in another T7 thread that the concept bike is at Kyalami. Maybe misread it.  :ricky:

This is a great looking bike. So simple yet functional. None of this complicated fairing setup...hope it stays this way. Foot pegs look like they may be movable.

Also easier to manufacture and initial assembly saving manufacturing costs.
