MCN -- January 2008, page 16 -- '08 Yamaha Raider: More Torque, Less Pork

    "Inside that flashy powerplant are some other up-to-date features, such as twin counter-rotating balancers -- which also weren't used back in the good old days. They reduce engine vibration to rider friendly levels and are specifically tuned to provide the optimum 'pulse character,' according to Yamaha. Thanks to the balancers, the massive mill churns along marvelously, without numbing your hands or shaking your feet off the footpegs, pounding out a deep soul-stirring syncopated beat." -- Ken Freund, Contributor
