Hmm, I wonder if they'll actually have the classic yamaha racing colors as an option. That would be sweet. Lots of awesome non-faired bikes out or coming out now.

I can dig it. . . . and I agree nice to see more naked bikes like the new Yamaha MT-10. Never thought I would be a fan of naked or semi-naked but after owning one I'm not sure I could go back as a primary bike.

Naked upright bikes are the tits! Way better for street riding and commuting. Cops don't even give a crap about them. Still love my KTM's! I wish the big 4 would work on making lighter bikes not just more power. My favorite bike is my 2008 KTM 690 Duke. 330lbs and 65 hp and 60 ft lbs of tq! Does everything I want and is easy to work off road if needed.

While not naked, my cb500x gets zero looks from the cops, helps wearing a hi-viz vest too. "Nothing to see here, just a safety concious responsible rider, move along." -- 67 MPG average doesn't hurt either.

Yes, I would like to see more lighter weight nakeds from the japanese firms too (the fz09 is not bad for the engine size but I'd like sub 400 lbs). The cb500* bikes are on my short list as practical bikes with good mileage but they weigh almost as much as my cbr1000rr. The 390 duke is actually on my short list too but as more of a toy that I would still use as a part of my commuting fleet (wondering about alternator output though, might be limited to 3 season commuting use).
