2017 Yamaha R6

And the video
http://youtu.be/r3AUGm2z3vw

I grabbed a screen cap of the dash


Power modes, traction control, quick shifter, gps(data logging?), gear indicator, abs, not sure what else.

I like how it looks, and would probably add it to the garage. We shall see

And here's a link to an article: http://www.sportrider.com/new-2017-y...&dom=tw#page-8

OMG OMG OMG...this is so hot! I would love to have one but I'll wait for the motorcycle show in Jan / Feb to sit on it and see how it fits me. Last R6 I was on felt too 'big' so it might not work out. We'll see. But I love the new look and I'm thinking it would be pretty sweet to ride.

I love the wheel color. It's so ugly and obnoxious but beautiful at the same time.
The white with silver is absolutely gorgeous!
