FZ09 3 cylinders crossplane?

Check this out...

The crossplane sounds just like traditional inline 3 on speed triple?

Asked if he was afraid of dying in an accident, Marco Simoncelli responded: "No. You live more for five minutes going fast on a bike like that, than other people do in all of their life." rip #58 ciao ciao bello

Its not going to have the traditional crossplane sound. With three cylinders, it will have an even firing pattern (every 120 degrees of crank rotation). If a flat plane three cylinder existed (does it), it would actually sound weird like the i4 Crossplane motor.

On paper this seems like a great move, but I cringed when I saw the HP numbers for the FZ9...

Wow, that tuned Yamaha XS850 Triple sounds awesome. My '00 Triumph Legend 900TT triple with bored out stock dual exhausts, modified primary airbox, removed emissions / secondary airbox, fully tuned Factory Ti Jet kit on carbs sounds similar (like a triple should) but more toned down. The FZ09 sounds like a tinny 4 cylinder in comparison, but I'm sure with a nice full exhaust and proper tuning it should sound like a triple!
