Yamaha's new FZ-09 is a class-breaking motorcycle designed to get motorcycling going again. For $900 less than the price of an FZ8 and $491 more than a 2013 HondaNC700X, this new 847cc three-cylinder naked puts a ton of the trickle-down technology of MotoGP into a sit-up standard for the first... 

The Yamaha FZ-09 will follow it European counterpart, the Yamaha MT-09, for the 2017 model year – getting an "upgrade" to its styling, along with a few performance enhancements. Yes, this means the face that only a mother can love is coming to US soil; but on the bright side, it's bringing with... 

"Naked middleweight" has a nice ring to it, no? Certainly better than "naked heavyweight," though "naked lightweight" does sound intriguing. And these two unfaired sportbikes are nothing if not intriguing. Because while they fill the same slot in each manufacturer's respective lineup, in some...
