Saw this in the flesh today. The basis looks good but there are a few things I noted.

The sump hangs really low
Finishing is not complete obviously but personally, they must stick with the simple design, it's good.
The nav tower is awesome.
They will probably put big ass tail lights and stuff on, I don't see these ones passing regulations....
The bar have these awesome mounts that will never make their way into production...way too much moola
The tank is great in aluminum and all but they should rather have a plastic tank like the 660 Tenere . The prototype tank is a dent or a few just waiting to happen.

The Yamaha lady said she heard they may not be available next year....

Overall, it looks great.

Mine did, way better than a steel tank. It's a hardship plastic, not like a dirt bike.

That looks fantastic!
Doubt the aluminium tank will make it into production though.
Can see "krokodiltrane" when that thing gets dinged  :-\

And you have never seen one with a dent?
I agree they were very pretty  :thumleft:

Putting a larger plastic tank on was probably the first thing most people did though.

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Two years and other manufacturers would have stolen their thunder......we're in a world of instant gratification. Two years isn't gonna cut it.

Looks damn nice. You see how nice it handles the rougher albeit smallish whoops.
