Clutchless shifting? Strange concept! I wonder how the performance is effected? It seems that the clutchless shifting will be close to a $2,000 premium. It had better work great or Yamaha will be eating a lot of crow!
The good thing is that Yamaha appears to have addressed the known heat and gearing issues with the bike by changing the cowling and high gear ratio. They have even added an accessory outlet and adjustable seat and adjustable handlebars.
In factory stock form:
250 plus mile cruising range
Top speed should now be in the 160+ - 170 range.
I WANT ONE! :sofa:
