Road - all NEW Yamaha XS 750/850 triple in 2014?

Moto Revue out of France reported that Yamaha is developing a new triple road bike citing an internal document. Yamaha produced one of my favorite bikes of the seventies, the XS750 from 1976-1979 before replacing it with the XS850 in 1980.

According Moto Revue the new naked model will feature an inline Triple engine, but an aluminum perimeter frame and upside-down forks. So clearing Yamaha taking a different direction to Honda with the very retro CB1100f. However, one thing is for sure, it will only be an modern day XS if it spoils a shaft-drive (for better or worse). Google search, set, as I eagerly await any updates or spy shots.

The potential new model is still likely at least 1.5 years away, but Moto Revue does this rendering.
