A friend did a factory visit recently and said no sign at all of new Rocket in production at Hinckley....
I know the tour I did last year had some pre-production. Rocket crank cases etc
Other bikes: 2017 Speed Triple R, 2010 Street Triple R,  ZXR 400 race bike for track days and Fantic 250 Casa for green lanes, and a Yamaha TDR250 for investment fun

Ha, tell it to Jeff Smith, that lardass xt660 wouldn't get a look in, it's an A2 learner bike.

Be needing a lot of extra horsepower to lug that extra 60Kg about.

Mr Bloor if you read this the perfect bike to produce in Tailand and judging how prices have nearly doubled since Yamaha stopped production their is still a market out there,although maybe not in carbon......

Any other officando's out there the wheels and brakes are off an Aprilla bit of a technical drama but got there in the end,

And I can attest to that having once tried to keep up on a K1300GT, I could just about catch up on long straights but once the bends came he was gone again :008:

My '58 Ariel would give that lardass a run for its money  :745:

A boy came out on the trails with us on a XT660, then swapped it for WR450, then swapped that for a TTR250, then he could keep up.

I've seen the B50's at Cadwell giving all the bigger bikes a trouncing, left them all for dead on the bends.

When the guy operating the handlebar bending machine saw the engineering drawing for those he just stood there scratching his head.
