For years, Yamaha has used a similar 3-cyl motor on their snowmobiles and WaveRunners. Have they made any street bikes with that type of motor?

I don't think yamaha would release it with issues. In one video a guy from Yamaha states that they wanted it to be known for reliability. Putting an unproven motor could seriously hurt this machines sales. Jmo.

This motor is basically the same motor they used in the Nytro and Viper. It is very reliable. I have 3 of them and never had an issue with any of them.

I'm sure it is quite different, but the power delivery and torque on my FZ09 is awesome, not to mention the sound. This YXZ should not disappoint in those areas.
