If Yamaha had had the courage to put belt-drive onto the new GT model I would already have put down my deposit. And without wishing to be churlish, with one or two exceptions the upgrades are quite minor and overall amount to, IMHO, a fairly modest face-lift and makeover of the existing model. That said, I wish Yamaha well with the two variants.
But I cannot help wondering what will happen to the warehouse full of 2015's that dealers here in Oz seem to be unable to give away.. .
Belt drive would have made it perfect.
