Yamaha started things off in the right direction with an aluminum frame, and left features such as ABS and traction control on the shelf to prevent loss of the gains garnered by the frame construction. The 25-degree steering-head angle and 17-inch front wheel produces 4.1 inches of trail for decisive cornering and crisp reversals. Of course, you’ll pay for that when you hit long, straight stretches on the highway, but it is a sportbike after all. The six-speed transmixer comes geared to make full use of the expanded torque curve while keeping the rpm reasonable at cruising speeds. Designed to work with the narrow three-banger engine, the gearbox helps keep the drivetrain trim and fit ahead of the rear running gear.
