I thought they said it was a 750, but I can't find any references to that now so maybe I was just mixed up with their previous triples.

Agree, they generated a lot of interest and went on a month or more with no image of the car. At least Yamaha isn't gonna drag it out that long. It is disappointing to see it only on the Euro website, US site (either Yamaha or Star) has zero reference to it.

Certainly doesn't bode well for it coming to the US, whatever it is.

With Cruise and ABS option! I am absolutely in love with the cruise control on my Victory. I can't imagine traveling without it ever again.

Same here, bought a Goldwing in February and have been spoiled rotten by cruise control. It makes the super slab so much more pleasant.

My right shoulder is in horrible shape. To be able to let go of the throttle and move it around is a lifesaver.

I really hope you are right. The TDM concept was way ahead of it's time - particularly over here, where only sportsbikes have sold well - but as that market is now suffering, i think it's time has come.

Yeah, I got one, (Ninja 300), it ain't bad, could be a lot better. A screaming triple with decent legs in that size would be awesome.
