That's gotta go down as the most expensive jap single ever released in Oz. Pity the specs and os reviews don't seem to warrent the price. But I'll keep an open mind

Its made in Italy so with the premium every other euro manufacturer thinks they can stick on the price of their bikes its probably in the ball park.

But it still says YAMAHA on the tag, and we are used to paying a low price for Japanese machinery so wonder how that will effect resale value.

2yrs old half of new price maybe ?

Am I correct in saying that we now have a Japanese manufacturer trying to flog their overpriced single for the same or nearly the same as the Bavarians ask for their overpriced single?

Can't wait for the $2000 Yamaha riding suit so I look good on the thing.
