    Cycle News posts first look at MT-10!-mt-10.jpg

    Yamaha’s Dark Side of Japan platform just got a lot darker (or florescent, depending on where you look), as the company unveiled one of the surprises of the EICMA Show in Milan, the MT-10.
    This is the first four-cylinder machine in the MT (branded FZ in the U.S.), line-up, and is a return to the ethos of the extremely popular FZ1 machine, a nakedbike that borrowed its powerplant from the YZF-R1.

    What about this beauty!!! 2016 Yamaha XSR900 | MOTORCYCLIST

    I can see some people flocking to this bike because of the ABS and TC alone.

    I think it's a miss. Modern-retro hipster looks, based on a hooligan platform. It doesn't make sense.

    The MT-10 is exactly what I thought Yamaha should do. I posted that a while ago. Seems a little edgey for older riders and not as touring oriented as the last FZ-1. Not quite the way I hoped it would turn out.

    Yamaha will sell the simple brushed-aluminum-tank version alongside a special 60th Anniversary special in the familiar bumblebee scheme.
    I really hate that fake air scopes on MT (FZ)-09 and I could use 1L more of gasoline...

    that bike needs black rims, imo. Whats up with the Neon green? or is it yellow? idk.
    The blue one is nice. I have to get used to the headlights though.

    Looks like a tank swap from the XSR to FZ could be done relatively easy.

    Just curious. Why would you do that?
