Exclamation Concept: Next New R6 "3 cylinder designed off cross plane crank. - October 2, 2012, 01:03 PM

New 3-cylinder engine based on the "crossplane concept" - Yamaha Motor Europe
Pictures are on the site linked at the top....


This new concept model represents an important and significant development with regard to Yamaha's plans for the company's future direction in the motorcycle marketplace. The crossplane concept behind the success of the YZR-M1 and YZF-R1 has inspired the design of an all-new 3-cylinder engine which is destined to play an important role in Yamaha's future. Yamaha firmly believe that this new engine concept will open up new horizons in riding enjoyment.
The crossplane concept has shaped the character and enhanced the rideability of the YZR-M1 and YZF-R1, and has played a major part in their respective success on the track and street. These motorcycles have become famous for their linear driving power which is a direct result of the 'clean' torque output created by the elimination of inertial torque to nearly zero. And it is this crossplane concept of eliminating the unwanted inertial torque to create clean torque that forms the basis of the new 3-cylinder Yamaha engine.
In the company's never-ending search for new challenges, and inspired by the sweet character of the crossplane concept featured on the M1 and R1 engines, Yamaha have developed an all-new 3-cylinder engine. By investing in this new layout, Yamaha have created a new-generation powerplant that brings with it a whole new world of possibilities.
This light, slim and compact new 3-cylinder engine is designed to add a new dimension to its category in terms of torque, sound and efficiency. By successfully combining the positive characteristics of 2-cylinder and 4-cylinder engines, Yamaha's 3-cylinder powerplant has the potential to bring race-inspired performance to the street.

I would guess R6 aka 675 since its legal in 600 class.
I wonder if they would make a big 3 cy bike like a R1 thats 1100cc displacement.

I have been waiting for an 1125cc Triple for a while now... not holding my breath anymore.

Aprilia was making stupid power from their Cube bike, but as far as I know the whole thing was tossed to the scrap heap, no trickle down goodness.
