this new yami

http://lanesplitter.jalopnik.com/the...-we-1719558774

Kinda cool looking. I dig it, but see why some may not. Sometimes I love Yamaha, and other times they make my skin crawl. This one though has a great retro feel with some modern twists. What do you think?

I for one like it -a lot. But with a 32+inch seat height it would be a bit of a challenge to get feet to the ground. And I wonder how long it would take me to interpret what the single dial info display is trying to tell me.
Regardless, it strikes me as being a reliable Ducati scrambler which I like as well.
Way to go Yamaha.

I like everything but the radiator. I keep pointing my remote at it and trying to change the station.

Very nice. I'm glad to see the rise in Roadsters. It will make bike shopping for the Versys' eventual replacement very interesting...

Always trust your cape.

I like everything about it except the massive radiator. It should be black.
