    Imagine - not the John Lennon song

    If the Yamaha engineers did the same thing to the Vmax 1600 as they've done to the R1.

    Think about it... the MT-16

    Higher, upright riding position...
    Short rake...
    Short wheel base...
    Tank under seat...
    The monstrous V4 tuned for maximum torque...
    Maybe even throw in hub steering...

    And of course, get rid of those pesky end cans!

    ... and shred a whole mass load of weight too, like loose over (a non-imaginary) 100kg, lol.

    And imagine on some brakes too and imagine a chassis that will get round corners as well ...

    Wal-la dream ends, Japanese engineers wake up screaming in sweat imagining non Japanese logic not achievable create sports hyper-naked more a hyper-cruiser for America only.

    There is only so much you can imagine let alone do with such an old base.

    Dream dream dream... nightmare nightmare nightmares, lol.
