All new everything. Magazines rip the bike for being too wide. Addressed. Public seems to want estart. Done. Want to tune the bike from your phone without buying an expensive tuner? Done. Updated ergos? Yep. Etc, etc.......

Still not happy? Don't by one. 

Trying to make me miserable along with you? You're wasting your time.

your "current 13" compared to "current" 17 ktm's and huskys? Maybe start by at least comparing bikes of the same year!

The '14's (Gen4) were a significant improvement over the Gen3 ('10-'13) models as it was.  We're now moving into Gen5, so you're two steps behind and trying to criticize something you haven't kept up with. 

In any case, for every rider who complains that the handling of the Gen3 bikes was sketchy, there are two who think it was an improvement over the Gen2's relatively lazy and push prone behavior (which was itself a big improvement over the steel framed Gen1).  Frankly, many of the complaints originate in a combination of the failure to dial the bike in,  and a refusal to adapt to the bike, rather than expect the bike to adapt to the rider.

Your opinion is noted, nevertheless.

Agreed. New bike looks great to me. Should be a solid offering. I understand they've tweaked the suspension settings, so I'm curious what that will do to a class-leading fork.

Well, I want one. But I don't need one, hell I can't begin to ride my 05 to its potential. But it sure looks like it's gonna rock and just think of what you get for the price compared to a bike of equal cost......say an orange two stroke.....that you have to rejet a carburetor, and mix gas and oil................oh and use a rubber band to hold the kickstand up.

Wow very impressive Yamaha, I like it a lot. Looks like they've addressed some issues and added more features. Way too go.

Only lost 2lbs over last year, looks like weight savings came from less fuel capacity, 1.6 gal now.

Yeah your right smaller tank and they weigh there bike wet, such a pitty i don't know why Yamaha doesn't improve in this area when Huskys Ktm's are down around the 100kg mark, tight single trails you really notice the extra weight (8kg) is a fair bit
