    People have been asking that about old stuff for years.

    Go bust, win a few races, not many made ( usually because no one bought them), sometimes they are ground breaking.

    In this case they did what Ducati do with old stock and put a number on it and say Limited Edition and watch the $$ roll in.

    Add a couple of goodies like a carbon fibre guard or alloy swingarm and your laughing.

    When you look at it you tend to make the same sort of noises as when you accidentally run your knuckles down the cheese grater?

    And there is my complaint. Yamaha has a stonking triple engine to play with - how hard would it be to produce a factory version running that engine...... NOT THAT FUCKING HARD.

    If you are reading this Yamaha I am available as a consultant for a .... reasonable .... fee.
