Yamaha Trademarks “FJ-09″ for the US Market

FJ-09 sounds like a sport-tourer based on that smokin' new 847 triple motor from the FZ-09. So think FJR1300 in a simpler, lighter package. Sounds like the ticket to me!

So far, just news about Yamaha trademarking the name: LINKY

If they put a driveshaft on it I'd be interested. Driveshaft or belt for touring. The last thing I want to do at the end of a long day is lube the chain. I also don't want to have to adjust the chain during a long trip. I did get the oil changed halfway through my epic Versys ride.

Shaft please. Having had a belt drive belt I can tell you it can be a long wait for one if you break it on the road. I rather have a chain than another belt drive.

Or was that look THEN leap?

I'd be ok with either a shaft or a chain drive. Shaft would add more cost initially. Some shaft drive bikes ride "wonky" to me. Especially when I open the throttle in the turns. The chassis / suspension in a shaft bike reacts differently than a chain. Though I've heard improvements have been made in recent years on many bikes.

You need to test ride a concours 1400.

Yeah. But then I might be tempted to buy one.
