I see they've decided to move on from the Transformers face and have doubled down Triumph's 'angry robot insect' approach with LED strip eyebrows. I get that vehicles have faces etc., but when it's made so direct it just looks silly. (See also: the clocks on the Tracer doing a passable impression of Dr Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog...)

Otherwise, nothing on the spec sheet is particularly interesting, but it's possible the light massaging might give it some decent character? I had high hopes for the new S1000R being something special, but reviews seem to suggest it's like the old one, just a bit more. I'm not expecting this to fight with the KTM and Aprilia for best-in-class, but if the price is right, it's still a lot of bike.

Shame about the eyebrows...

Haven’t ridden the new 1kr but the 1krr is a huge improvement over the last one (my subjective hands on opinion). I’m looking forward to seeing what the R feels like, regardless of the journalistic opinions. I already have first hand experience of the motor and it’s a hoot.

Maybe the SP version? Didn’t look at the specs but I assume no electronic suspension, etc.

its not the best looking but in my opinion, better looking than the old one.

Turns out the SP version is coming to NA...it will have ohlins semi active and *checks notes* steel braided lines....Took them this long?

FFS Yamaha, can you just fire your design team already? I have never seen a manufacturer do such a 180 to the downside in styling.

Did a demo ride on an MT10 a few years ago and absolutely loved it, could never buy one cause it's so damn ugly.

Got to agree with this one, esp. the color of the wheels.... bizarre. I guess the blurple wheels on my Tracer could have served as a warning as to what else might come down the pipe from Yamaha. This new MT10 has the same TFT display as mine, which I really like.

Also did a demo ride a few times ago..nice bike, but needs to be reflashed to rid the throttle cut...I own a similar FZ1, a pleasure to ride through the mountains, minimal shifting due to the enormous torque, just roll the throttle and enjoy 😉
