Return of the TRX?



 Last week Visor Down publish one post (Thanks David S. for the link) about the posibility of the launch of a new Yamaha XTZ 1200 engined road bike. The return of the TRX?. This is what I hope, and I created some time ago a Facebook group (We want a new Yamaha TRX)  but I´m not the only one that dream with a new Yamaha TRX or a sport twin with another name but with the TRX spirit.


French forum trx (www.lestrixeux.fr)  have made some years ago a formal request asking  to Yamaha launching a new TRX 900 (TDM 900 engine) with more than 1570 members.
 
 Here the Visor Down post:


"In a reversal of Honda's tactic of taking the fully-faired VFR1200F sports tourer and turning it into the Crosstourer adventure bike, Yamaha looks like it might be planning to use its new Super Tenere as the basis of a faired road bike.

New patents, revolving around the Tenere's shaft drive system, show it fitted to a faired road bike. Although these bare outlines show no detail, and may be there just as a generic representation of a motorcycle, it wouldn't be totally unimaginable for Yamaha to make such a machine.
Just as the original Super Tenere, the XTZ750, spawned the road-oriented TDM850 and the TRX850, it;'s unlikely that Yamaha has developed the entirely new 1200cc Super Tenere without giving some thought to other models it could spin off from the machine. Bear in mind that its main rival, BMW's R1200GS, shares its engine and much of its chassis with the R1200R and R1200RT – bikes in a totally different vein and yet still capable machines in their own right.
The Super Tenere's 109bhp twin and shaft drive would lend themselves to a tourer or even a VFR800-rivalling sports tourer while keeping development costs to a minimum, just as Honda has created the Crossrunner adventure sports bike by rehashing some old VFR800 parts and is planning on turning the VFR1200-based Crosstourer concept into a production machine in the near future."


I hope this rumours became true and not only Yamaha launches a tourer or sports tourer motorcycle. I wish that  Yamaha  creates  a real sports bike using the Yamaha TDM 900 and the XTZ 1200 engines  (such as Ducati 848/1048, Buell 1125, Aprilia RSV 1000 or KTM RC8).
 
 
TRX 850 / F800S
Other posibility that I propouse  it´s a middle range naked bike with the 900 engine bike like BMW F800 series (the bike that most remainds me the TRX), Aprilia Shiver, Ducati Monster, Kawasaki ER6 or Suzuki Gladius. All of them twin bikes  avaliable on the market with good sales. 

The BMW F800 engine, the German Trixie.

I will update all news about this in following posts, if you knows other news about a new Yamaha XTZ engined bike or sports twin please leave a comment here or post it on TheTRXproject on Facebook or on WeWantANewYamahaTRX group on Facebook.
