HERE'S WHAT a couple of foreign motorcycle magazines think the new XJ650 Diversion from Yamaha will look like - and according to them we will see the bike sometime over the next couple of months.

The machine is rumoured to be one of the new models revealed by Yamaha at the Milan bike show this November, alongside the all-new R1, the XJ650 will spearhead the firm's assault on the sporty commuter middleweight sector.

The bike will feature a trellis frame and a mix of styling cues from such diverse ranges as the new V-Max and the FZ6.
