    Yes the MT used to be called the FZ.
    The MT-09 is comparable to our NCs in many ways. It's not called an "adventure" bike so has less clearance and travel but it is a naked standard bike with...

    That Revzilla article is interesting but they lumped we "standard" riders in with the black-leather cruiser guys. I'm more a BMW/Goldwing/Triumph kind of guy.

    I have another idea about white helmets (and why I think they're best); we (all drivers) recognize white helmets. Our subconscious mind spots them and labels "motorcycle rider" without even thinking...

    Yamaha MT-09??

    Anyone have any personal experience with the MT-09 (2017+) and can compare it to the NC?

    On paper it looks like the bikes are comparable with the Yamaha having some advantages.

    I do think ABS is great for bikes and the stats prove it: 1. If the front locks up you almost always go down, period. So it's possibly crash or no crash. Obviously, it's not like a car where it...

    Consider a linked brake system with both brakes operating from the right hand brake lever? Honda has made a few bikes with linked brakes.
    Not simple but doable.
