Yamaha going to triples for 2014

for the R6 & R1. It'll be interesting to see a 1100cc SBK.

Kind of torn, but I can see how it makes business sense. An 08 R6 isn't much different than a 2012, no reason to buy new. Especially hard to justify the rising cost of new bikes. I hope they do a good job with it. Probably not hard to make a street worthy triple, but racing isn't the same. Wouldn't want to see them take a step backwards trying to develop a new engine.

There's been some talk that Yammi is planning big motor changes in their Snowmobile lineup as well. Some have have speculated it's for similar reasons to what Pat mentioned.

Interesting to see if they can time this well enough with a recovering market to grab some share.

Two cylinders to 1 too short and four cylinders is 1 too many. 3 is just right.

Everyone knows about what Yamaha and what is their capability, so this will be a good move too. Grabbing shares is not the case.

I'd love to see another manufacture with a triple. Let's hope this turns out.

Jeff, where have you been? Haven't seen you post in ages.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Moved to Wisconsin and been super busy being a business owner. Only rode 7-8 times all year. Hoping for a good ice season though.

Anymore new on the Yamaha triple or Honda V4?

Go back to 2stroke and it'll be way cheaper.

I've had my eye on buying a D675 for a while now, but if Yamaha comes out with a triple I'll definitely go for it over the Triumph just for the better dealer network and lower cost.

Hope this pans out.
