They dropped the 'reverser' gear train tower above the output shaft for the 'Luder'.

Re:Another new bike from Yamaha 1 Month ago  
Not sure if I missed it or info isn’t available yet. Is there anything out there on those new bikes yet regarding 1/4 mile times or roll on info at highway speeds?

Somewhere (can’t remember where) I saw something like 76ish HP from a dyno somewhere. TQ around 120 or so. I want to know what the real world performance is though.

All I found were dyno results @ the rear wheel on Rider Magazine's web site.

It’s been a long time since an all-new Japanese luxo has landed, so we couldn’t wait to get the Venture on the Jett Tuning dyno to see what kind of low-end torque machine it might be. With 109.4 lb-ft at 2,750 rpm at the rear wheel, the Venture’s peak torque equals or edges out all of its V-twin competition and the Gold Wing (but not the GTL), and more than 100 lb-ft are available from 2,000 to 4,000 rpm. Moreover, with the torque peak hitting at well below 3,000 rpm and the engine turning just 2,750 rpm at 75 mph, it’s unnecessary to rev it anywhere near its redline of 4,750 rpm, though the rev limiter cuts in quite softly should you hit it.
