Tail tidies will probably be sold for almost every FZ/MT's purchased. The Plate area looks like an after thought, not a styled portion of an otherwise nice looking motorcycle...tp dd50

The 2013 Yamaha MT-09 is going to be showed to the world press in Croatia. Still unsure of where exactly, but i hope it's gonna be here on the coast, just like in 2011 with the premiere of V-storm 650.
I bet I know where..

My thoughts exactly. I thought I was done buying new bikes (depreciation), and I just built this over the winter, and sold both my Street Triple R's, and Yamaha wakes up and bring this out. So now I am first in line for one at my local dealer that I bought my quads from last year. Here's a pic of this winters build. She's a fun little bitch, plenty of power for the street, good pull out of corners. Between losing the bodywork, and the Leo Vince exhaust she lost 30lbs. The zx6r front end and Penske shock really woke up the chassis.

Yamaha is also bringing out a new parallel twin to fit in with this new family of engines. I hope they put it in a 'tard, as I just sold mine a couple weeks ago. I may need to buy a couple of these new Yamaha's. Here's a link to that. http://www.motorcycledaily.com/2013/...anese-meeting/

Thanks again Yamaha for finally waking up, looks like a good year for those of us not interested in cruisers, or supersports.

Just FYI, the guy in the video says things like:

"Wow, it's very slim, and my feet are firmly planted. The handlebar position feels similar to a motocross bike... Yes I'm pretty sure it's telling me to wheelie. It sounds like a Triumph of course.. Being a triple and all. I like it, can't wait to ride it for real."

Which reminds me, Japan domestic market is also excited about this bike, so Yamaha has enthusiasts in Asia, Europe and the US to market to. If they can Keep the prices as noted, the business case is probably pretty good.

The world wide reliable, reasonably priced enthusiast brand.

I'll be interested to see which, if any, other Japanese brand follows suit and also brings out a triple. Is a trend in the works?

Good looking and sounding bike. This will be a big seller, light, agile and powerful. The funny on this bike is the LCD display off center to the right, I guess that's the Japonese way of non conformity. I hope they allow for versatility, with luggage and accessories for travel(I'm tired of the touring and adventuring). All motorcycle sold should have attachments points for panniers and top boxes, and if I'm elected president, dictator or king, it will be the first order of business along with banning the words "touring and adventure". People could only refer to them as the "T-word and A-word".

As someone observed earlier, putting the LCD off center to the right leaves room on the left for a GPS. Sweet bike, looking forward to the 1/2-faired version.

I agree! That rear end is horrible. I still have the fender on my FZ6, I don't find it to be intrusive at all. They should really find a way to go back to a smaller fender.
