I like the look, but I think I'd prefer a Yamaha XSR

I’m kinda underwhelmed...and a little disappointed with all the hype.

Would rather have a 1200 Monster or an 1100 Scrambler.

The review I read was mixed. It's heavy, has good torque, vibrates through the seat. And pretty expensive.

Not sure why they just couldn't build the Scout package with midmounts and good suspension, maybe add a flyscreen, retro cafe or street tracker and call it a day.

Yes, it is heavy (500+ lbs), especially for this type of bike, and only with a 3.4 gallon fuel tank.

If they'd have come out with a sport version of that 900, I might've gotten it over the SS. I rode my buddy's FJ09 and liked the power but not the set up, too upright for me, not enough tuck, and then there's the styling..... Perhaps if I were ever interested in a Multistrada, which I am not....

The Yamaha 900 Triple is in my humble opinion the best engine ever produced for a motorcycle and is BEGGING for it to be put in a comfortable supersport (like our SS is) chassis. There are lots of guys modifying the FZ-07 and roadracing them, very tasty looking but it begs for the “real” sweetheart engine.

As you said, the FJ09 (or Tracer as it’s now known worldwide) is a great bike but very upright. The FZ-09 is a sportier position but even with the newer versions updated suspension settings is a weird ride, the XSR is looking closer but still pretty much an FZ with different bodywork.

Give me a “real world” R1 with the 900cc triple in it and I’d have a hard time keeping the SS. Better yet, Yamaha, give me a replacement of my Triumph Sprint GT: fast, comfy, full luggage, two up capable but still SPORTY unlike the fat pig FJR you like to say is your sport tourer. Trust me, it’s not........

what's wrong with it? Power, position, leaning capability?
