I was just listening to pulp and sounds like they said Yamaha's will be black, if i heard that correctly?
Have there been pics shared of black Yamaha's?

I haven't seen the '19 race bikes, but I'd say go back a few years in the GPs, and check out the Yamahas. More Monster-style.

Well, if there was ever a company that liked to change colors on the corporate bikes, that would be Yamaha.....

I've never really been a fan of the black in all the current graphics. I really miss the days of colorful bikes and gear. That said, that black and blue Yamaha looks good IMO. Whodathunkit?

The Star Yamaha bikes will look like this with some minor differences (few sponsor logo changes and their parts), but that's the basic design.

Ummmm can you please use the term "African American" Yamahas from this point on? I find the term black Yamahas very offensive...

Looks like something on Craigslist with a lengthy description of how well it runs followed by “cheap fix, just don’t have the time. Will trade for Polaris RZR, bass boat, gooseneck trailer, zero turn mower, Mustang or lifted Jeep. NO SCAMS!”

Nope not a fan of black plastic

Personally, I am a fan of the neon or flo coloured bikes, starting with Pro Circuits flo green, flo yellow Suzuki’s, etc. also favour the bright colours like red, orange and yellow. Easier to pick them out.

It’s the same users on here complaining about the popularity of the sport, or that the sport isn’t entertaining, complain when a team goes against the grain.

When will people realise that every year with every change it’s the same story
-Everyone Initially hates it
-and later end up liking it

Search up old “First look” threads of current bikes and go from there

Learn to embrace a new look people!

*i think the sport is fine
**im not a huge fan of it either but I’m not here ratting it out as I’m sure the look will grow on me

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.

I'm pretty sure I heard that all the factory & factory supported Yamaha teams will run black plastics as they've inked a deal with Monster Energy, at least that is in Europe.

Star is basically Yamaha's Factory 250 effort. Im very surprised Yamaha approved them running any color besides blue.
Since Yamaha sells both blue and white bikes, would of loved to see white Yamaha's back on the track.
God forbid someone mistaken a Yamaha for a Husky and vice versa.

looks Ok, I always liked the anniversary bikes with the yellow/black myself.

I swear, you guys hate every bike change that comes down the block - for about a month - and then you love it and want it and happily buy whatever it takes to make your bike look like it. Save yourself some time and aggravation - love it now. I do.
