I heard the Yamaha are forced to drop the MT09 due to emissions regulations, I wonder if the MT07 engine is a problem for them too.

It has been quite widely known that this has been the challenge and a big part of the delay on getting the bike to the market.

What a twat. Besides having packed in a few too many pies, he has also not taken into consideration that it's a YAMAHA. Only buy it once and you get to ride it ALL the time

Lucky for us Yami riders we are happy with our penis size and generally content with our ability to ride our bikes without a hundred sensors on the bike trying to keep it upright, but hey if riding a 200kg "rider aid" works for others we will not point fingers but we will carry tow rope's to make sure you get to sleep in a warm bed in the evening.

I agree it's going to roughly same weight as a 660Z but will have 25hp more. Been tested plenty so no nasty surprises with air boxes and the motor is proven. Looks the part and I for one am happy there is no electronic gimmicks, I would even have gone for non ABS if available. For us non aliens it's going to be a very good DS bike. I like the black colour scheme  :thumleft:

Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

That pricing is keen. A standard Africa Twin is GBP12,000, so you are saving GBP3,300 (if you consider that AT a competitor)
