Yet another bad sign Yamaha is failing to complete against the other Japanese brands... first to move USA HQ from the number one motorcycle market in the US

I want to try that new 765 Triumph.
2018 Yamaha YZ250FX (Fuel injected, e-start=dirty fun)
2016 BMW S1000RR Premium (Oh-my-GAWD!)
2015 MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR CORSA (Sex machine)
2006 Harley Davidson V-Rod Street Rod (*Not a real Harley)
2003 Yamaha YZF-R1 (My favorite generation)

*My reply: If you dont like motorcycles that handle/perform as one should, then yeah...the V-Rod is NOT a real Harley.

I like that 765 and the engine rips especially when uncorked, but the frame is just a little small for me. I tested a friend's before I traded in the FZ10 on the S1000XR. I thought the S1000XR was big until I swapped bikes with a buddy on a ride last weekend for his GS Adv with bar risers. Got back on mine and it felt miniscule, so maybe I just needed to hop on the 765 after coming of a 600 supersport and it would have felt better. I can say the street triple matches the s1000xr in power delivery when coming out of corners up until 7-8k, then I pull on him.
