Could a new Yamaha FZ1 look like this?

Mock-up of R1-influenced 'new FZ1' in Japanese bike mag

IS a new FZ1 Fazer on the way? Yamaha UK recently discontinued the existing FZ1, which could be a sign a replacement is coming, and now Japanese bike mag Young Machine has slapped this mock-up of an R1-influence FZ1 Fazer on its latest front cover. 

Frankly we don't know whether to believe the prediction or not, but it would potentially make a good answer to Suzuki’s GSX-S1000F, wouldn't it?
