Freakin' amateur. Stand on your head like the rest of us.
You left out the handful that will go to collectors. Many years from they will be sold with basically no miles on them and perfect paint.
I saw it at the local Motorcycle show yesterday - not a groundbreaking exercise in design evolution by any means but in the flesh it looks great.
Maybe somebody smarter than me can explain why there's a hole drilled halfway up the shifter arm? Only thing I can think of is that it's for flipping the arm to flip the shift pattern to GP Shift? Never seen that on a production bike before.
Also, the bike I saw was not upside down, it was rather boringly right side up on a 3' high stand with the usual "Keep your stinking kid's off our machinery" signs around.
You mean something like this?
It's been on the R1 since 2015, and the picture of the BMW above. Just run a tap through the hole and you have GP shift.
Never understood why people did that, there's more than enough room to flip the linkage.

Short clip of how it sounds on wot
I couldn't be more bored with the state of motorcycling.
Following that link:
Looks like they released the non-SP pricing in France already, @ 22k EUR, due in May, vs the 26k for the limited production one.
All the US-bound bikes in one place.
Just watch the 44 teeth & Visordown impression and they both say gutless low to mid
Yamaha called...they want their 2016 tank design back.
Keep in mind this is all relative. As road going superbikes must be more 'race ready' and less modifiable to reach WSBK use, they will use larger bores, that require shorter strokes, that allow higher revs, that allow camshafts to be designed to give more hp at higher engine speeds.
So a modern bike that feels like it's "All top end" feels that way because it revs to 15k RPM instead of 12.5k, and is geared to take advantage of that.
You have to take the power across the rpm range into account. If it's smooth and linear, it's gonna feel gutless. Then, only when you ride a bike with that type of delivery in anger will your puckerometer begin to peg.
When are the frickin' actual riding vids gonna come out?
This walking around and fumbling for words is BS.
Let's see that bike in anger!
