    I agree with you!! The oomph factor with this design seems to have gone atleast for me! Looks very familiar to the new R3 which is not a good thing since this is a premium series bike!!

    But the technology looks good, we have to see how to it stands to the new 1299 Panigale!!

    Personally I didn't like the looks at all. It seems like the eyes have been stretched down. It seems like Yamaha is coming out of the conventional design and a new design era is starting, Hope this design will be more innovated and will have the same effect as the previous R1s had on everyone till date. The technology is fabulous. Yamaha has done a fantastic job at this dept. Also I guess Yamaha hasn't left any chance for questions to be asked about the handling.

    My Review of Yamaha R3 at 82K ODO

    Ride a motorcycle if you want to live free, but above all ride it safe and make others' lives safe.

    Stunning. Yes, the projectors may be look a little out of place but minus that, the bike is nothing but hotness! As close you can get to an M1 as possible. That front air scoop! Wow!

    All the tech improvemts are at some point either going to make it a hell to remember or with all the tech switched on no fun of manually controlling the bike....

    The bike does look stunning, but seems to have lost the DNA from the previous generation R1s. The front looks quite similar to the Panigale.

    Yes, this is a different R1 to those which we used to see. Specially the front panel!
