Interesting. Certainly gets one's curiosity up. My guess from watching part 3 video is it'll be a V-twin with lots of electronics, similar to high end Harley Davidson models.

Thank you for posting!

Imagine safely.

I had heard rumors from a dealer.... I hope so. A little shake up of the status quo would be good.

I can only hope they ditch that V-twin and go to a modern engine. The 1983 Yamaha Venture beats the living heck out of the later Yamaha "touring" models, but the same thing can be said for Kawasaki and Suzuki. All these years and they all go V-twin as their touring engine, after inline 6s, V4 ect? Like offering a flathead V8 in a new truck. Hope they do something good, not another V-twin.The Vmax engine made for touring would fit in great, as that was how the first Ventures were, a touring tuned engine basically shared with the gen1 Vmax.

Well, it will be a "reveal", making the article a good "read", so at the end of the day, it is what it is... a virtual paradigm shift. What will be the "out the door price point", and what will be it's cruising range (i.e., will riders be able to journey farther while they "journey further")?
