If you guys havent seen this on the first page its a great article. These bikes look incredible. No way can you make excuse anymore about these bikes. The new stocker is already a great bike, much thinner, best suspension in the class, tons of hp. These bikes are trick. The first graphic designs I wasnt the biggest fan of but damnnnnn these look good now. Coop is primed and ready for his breakout season on this new bike. They finally worked out most of the kinks and I cant even imagine whats under the hood of these factory bikes. These are badass. Thin chassis, tons of hp, great suspension, great riding position... Yamaha's time is now.

Monster logo ruins it for me. Apart from that they look sweet.
Kawasaki manages to pull off the Claw.. Barely..
Just think of the potential of those graphics if they did not have the huge claw on mandatory black background..

Whatever pays the bills I guess..

Also; whats that Knich clothing brand thing that is launching at A1 in "Janruary"?

I agree 100% with every single thing you just said. I realize why the Monster logo is there, but it takes away from the beauty of the bike. It almost (ugh) makes sense on the Kawasaki, but I believe Monster is the reason Kawasaki won't dabble with putting any blue back on their bikes which is when they were so damn sweet looking.

It is what it is and we should be grateful for the great sponsorship, it just takes away from the good old factory looking bikes.

You're killing me Crush-Bro. Although it is a lot of blue, the rims were a sweet touch. Black rims are a trend that has lasted a long time, I am ready for it to go. About now they remind me of the rise of FMX and baggy MX pants.

I'm with the Mike-man. I'm all up for the blue rims. Black is just played out. As bad ass as it looks

Blue rims are for Gumtree roaches with cut down seats, guards and grab-holes.

Factory Yamaha should be silver rims, mag hubs.

I like the bolt on parts in some classic combos... I'm def not in the black it out crowd like you see at most tracks, but my design style is cleaner than most.

Honda – Gold rims with black/silver hubs or silver/silver

Yamaha – Silver rims, mag hubs

Suzuki – Yellow both

Kawi – Silver or black rims, green hubs

KTM – Black rims, orange hubs

Husky – Silver rims, blue hubs

Interesting with a lot of the brands some of the restrictions... the green claw must have to be placed on black via their brand rules, but the bike would benefit by cleaning that up to be all blue and changing the positioning of the claw... same with the Yamaha on the forks with the black wrap. The JGR 250s have the same issue...

The black background doesn’t bother me. Im typically pretty ok with the branding rules. They can be navigated.

It’s the Monster logo itself and what it represents. I cringe when I see it. I cant help but think of DirtShart.

Monster/Kawi
KTM/Red Bull

The brand association there is hard to shake.

Hubs should match secondary trim color imo in most cases on satellite & private teams.

And on factory teams it looks best if hubs match OEM color.

Just my opinion.

Is it just me or does the Yamaha on the forks look oit of place? And the Vortex sprocket, isn’t exactly a thing of beauty.

1/3/2018 10:17 PM

Those are some pretty good looking pigs. I don't like the black sprocket or the big black monster logo but can't avoid that.

The Monster logo ruins it for me. I prefer the cleaner look of the early 2000's Yamaha factory bikes...

Last year's bikes looked better.

This year some of the logos are more clunky than the atrociously long team name. Monster Energy, Yamaha, Yamalube, Yamaha Financial Services, Yamaha Pianos, GYTR, Yamaha Quad, Knich, GET Factory Racing Team brought to you by Yamaha and Monster Energy Blue Cru.

Keep it simple. Geico Honda. RedBull KTM.

Eyes liked into the stupid Monster energy logo.

They do look good. The blue rims have grown on me. What I like most is how this team is under the hype radar going into A1 with huge upside potential. Webb is bound to have a much better time of it this year and while I'll admit Barcia is a personal favorite of mine I think he just might be the surprise of the season when it is all said and done.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.
