    Have you guys seen the ads for Yamahas new bike? The planned reveal is June 5th. Hopefully more interesting than Indian showing a "new" bike with red paint and a big wheel.

    Did not even know they were coming out with a new model. It would be nice if it's a Stratoliner with a 6 speed transmission.

    Looks like they are getting into the more fancy bagger scene.

    It is going to be interesting to see what the other manufacturers bring out in the next year or so. I'm sure they are all going to be trying to pick up some of what would have been Victory customers. I'm not surprised that Yamaha is one of the first to bring out a new model since they dropped the 1900cc bagger a while back. Kawasaki and Suzuki probably won't be very far behind since they both dropped the big cc baggers too.

    With the new European emissions, most of the bikes on the market are going to have to be redesigned to meet the new standards. Should be lots of new models, dropped models, and redesigned / upgraded bikes coming out soon.

    Stratoliner Tour with a 6 speed and the guages up off the tank would be great.

    All my prior bikes were Yamahas.
    650 special
    750 Maxim
    Roadstar
    Had my CCT for several months before selling the Star. After getting used to how easy the Vic was to turn the Star just wasn't up to it. The Star would also drag parts way sooner than the Vic.
    The 5 speed on the Star was smooth, but a 6th gear on highways would have helped.
    Zero probs with any Yamaha.

    Yup, Euro 4 is a bike killer. I hear Honda has discontinued the 600cc engine because the market is down and they don't see the benefit of completely redesigning the engine just to meet the standard. Didn't seem to stop Yamaha or Suzuki as they have come with all-new models of the type. Be that as it may, I will be looking on with interest to see what this new Yamaha touring machine is all about. The little video segments are nice teasers!

    Keep the 9, it doesn't look like it's going to be long for the world either. Even I am watching for a deal on another one. Found another Raider, but the price isn't negotiable. The 1900 is a good, strong engine that never works hard.

    My 9 isn't going anywhere! I have way too much time effort and money into it to ever sell it. The Magnum is quickly reaching toward that point as well. If I keep up my current pace, in about 20 years, I'm going to have one hell of a motorcycle museum!

    Along with a larger fuel tank. 4.5 gallons doesn't cut it for a touring bike.

    An updated performance V4 touring bike would be nice. The 4 headlights from the teaser reminds me of a Goldwing.

    A 5 speed on my Strat or FJR was no issue, but the Stats 4.5 gal tank needed constant filling...

    I had a 2007 VStar 650. Small but a very good bike. I'm interested in seeing what they come out with.
