Not so much that asd the press has been very hot on this bike.  They did have 2 at the show, one stock, one kitted out all the way.  In terms of bang for the buck, it is hard to beat.
I was at the Honda shop yesterday for snow blower parts, I asked what was available as factory options for the CBR650F.  The answer was "nothing".  Yamaha said all their stuff was available as of the release of the bike.
I really liked the new street oriented Tigers too.

But if you get the FJ-09, the three of us will all be riding Yamaha's   :naughty:

Yeah, mid 50s for MPG vs a 3.7 gallon tank.  Slowly Yamaha is learning to cover the bases.

Based on my read.....I'm betting that this becomes one of those bikes that is low on maintenance and just keeps delivering. A faired version would knock it out of the park for yamaha!
