Who on earth buys a new bike on the strength of a vague video and a few pics? Well me

Can't help thinking i've ordered a great new bike, but what if the motorcycle press slam it after testing it?
Yamaha have marketed this absolutely right in snippets of video footage and limited pics, thus intriguing people like me to want more and more info while delaying the launch by a few months!

I did this once with the Honda CB1000R.... what a disappointment that was! no test ride no purchase, that's my policy from now on.

I'm also falling into this disappointment and then since to be a long time I don't deal with them.
