When I rode the Yamaha Bolt last month, Yamaha’s staff told me they were up to something – something big.
Yamaha had been quiet, evaluating the market through the last couple years, they said, but that was about to change. First, they brought out the Bolt – an interesting step, but not revolutionary – but there was more to come in June. Or so they said.
Well, watch this video (titled “The Dark Side of Japan) and then think about it again. What’s coming? A superpowered supermoto? Just guessing, I’d say whatever the bike is, it’ll feature a triple, as seen at Intermot.
