Want to sell it, will never buy another Yamaha product
At under 1000 miles the motorcycle developed extremely loud metal to metal noise, more. This makes the motorcycle very uncomfortable due to unrelenting excessive noise (and no mods to the exhaust).
At under 1000 miles the motorcycle developed extreme vibration at all RPM and all speeds including idle. This makes the motorcycle extremely uncomfortable to ride for even short distances of say over 10 miles.
Manufacturer's apparent position is that the motorcycle is naturally noisy, and if dealer can't 'fix' a problem it's not the manufacturers concern.
Apparent position is 'drive it till it breaks, then we'll see if the warranty applies'.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No
