Comparing to the likes of an RR310/ RC390 for instance, and taking the prices into consideration?
Should I elaborate on a two cylinder advantage versus that of a big bore single cylinder engine?

Or should I compare a Japanese reliability with any other manufacturer?

So it 'excel at one purpose and is more focused and involving' when it comes to reliability and refinement?

Japanese reliability was not seen in the earlier version of the R3 - but I'm glad they've made amends with those bad tyres, did recalls for the ignition issues and introduced ABS now.

So yeah - while it would be a long explanation to do - but anyways - those are valid points as well. And if one finds it worth paying double the amount for smoothness and reliability over something like the RR - its again a personal choice. Yamaha as a brand had never lost its share of fans ever since their glory days.

But when it comes to core motorcycling characteristics - the RR310 has really closed the gap. Not that I say it - but competent magazines like Powerdrift and Evo do.

Sad to see no FZ-07. It makes so much more sense than the FZ-09 for India. Or even get the outdated FZ6R. Will make a wonder machine for Indian bikers to graduate to the liter class.

It pretty much competes against the Triumph Street Triple 765 and the Kawasaki Z900, except with the pricing.
