These new sport bikes are lightweight and comfortable enough for an entry-level rider, but they've also got enough power to satisfy a seasoned pro.
Yamaha's marquee bike features "usable power," meaning it's got balls when you want to open up the throttle but won't take you for a thrill ride every time out. A liquid-cooled, 600cc engine, on a lightweight compact frame with an upright riding position, makes this bike ideal for daily commutes and weekend tours.
