Build it and Europeans will buy it. Barcelona yuppies love those things.

Wow, I wonder how long it'll be before the United States gets that bike. And I wonder how much it'll be given that the current 500cc T-Max is toward the high-end of the scooter price range. Eesh... I'm currently selling my Vino 125 (modified to 150cc) and had thoughts of getting a T-max, but I might wait if this really comes to market...

I'm amazed that Yamaha did the old FIAT 500 Ciquecentro trick of putting all the throws of the crankshaft between two large end bearings. I'm hoping the crank is strong enough to not flex much when revved up.

It IS hard to see, I think there are possibly 4 main bearings. Piston rods being attached to the outer two journals and the center one...

Yamaha had an earlier triple 750.. I don't know about the mains on it ...
Someone will!!
