Back in 2010, Yamaha came out with an updated FZ1. Everyone, including us, was dying for a naked YZF-R1, especially since Yamaha had dropped the all-new, crossplane R1 in 2009. Alas, it didn’t happen in 2010 and it’s pretty much been on deck ever since. We waited until we lost hope. And then the MT-10 came out in Europe, and we were crushed that it wouldn’t make it to US shores!
