Both great bikes. The #1 doesn't hurt the Chap bike either

How far they have fallen.



And look how long Monster has been involved with SX/MX. From a small Monster/Hansen Energy Drink logo on the fork guard to being the title sponsor of the SX series, and being plastered everywhere you look.

Yamaha has a deal globally with Monster for SX/MX, MXGP and MotoGP. I'd assume they'd all tie-in with each other somehow. The big loser in this is what is Kawasaki going to do when the Monster money goes bye, bye next year?

Well, I prefer this for this for Yamaha's. But with that being said, I do like that look better than just a sea of blue we've had lately. At least there is some contrast.

The black on the frame visually unifying with the black plastic almost looks like the Skater skin bikes

Good look for them in my opinion. I like how Yamaha changes them up.

Can anyone explain to me when we became complacent with these atrocious back number plates?

I can remember a time when TWMX’S main complaint with KTM was written as “is that really a number plate. Yuck”.....

For the love of god bring back the times where the back shrouds hid the exhaust....not excentuated it

White bikes matter too
Hey is that the Yamaha brand tall seat or another brand? How is it? Is it as firm as the 19 stock seat?

I think you have the best looking yzf in my opinion which is funny cuz I have the 19 white edition and I'm not a fan of the white. I'm gonna go blue front/black back

Whoever's idea it was to go with a black scheme needs to rethink their career, this bike has looked the best in years all blue. wth

I think it would look 10x better with a blue front end (fender, plate, fork guards).

I remember watching this vid of the Gp guys back in ‘12. I wanted one of those bikes so bad. Can’t remember where I read it but they had a 3 speed gear box and were making shit loads of power.

Or maybe just black graphics on blue plastics.

Might as well go ahead and put spoke skins on it too, then it will be ready for the 6th owner to put it on Craigslist! I know Monster pays the bills, but black plastic and Monster graphics ruin any bike in my eyes.

Agree. If you're going to go with a lot of black but still keep a little of the original color, make the frontend the original color. That goes for pretty much all the brands in my opinion!

My only thought is that Monster must have really boosted their support in order to get their front end away from factory blue

Full white yamaha's are the best. Going to post a photo of my old yz125 soon. 100$ for new plastics, no graphics and to me it was awesome. Way better than many ufo's plastic classic blue bikes.
