Something New Coming From Yamaha in 2016?

Yamaha is running a new promo for the XF series. What makes me curious is that it is a fully loaded deal with expansions (perhaps signaling a blowout) and I notice it runs through March 30, 2016 (after NAMM and just before new product hits street). Anyone else see this as a potential indicator?

I'm hoping for something new, something with more synth and less tired than the MOTIF series...

Maybe, there's:
- The "Montage" trademark that's still unused
- Richard Devine working with Yamaha on something that's "totally alien to anything [he's] ever used"
- And I think someone over at Amazona hinted about another reveal coming up, although I can't find it right now.

I like the white Motif XF they have now. I can't afford it, but it looks better than the black one IMO. I'm also happy to see Yamaha at least testing the synth waters again with their reface line. I played the CS and CP last week. They were both great but the CP is really sweet sounding. Might have liked the CS more, but I only got to play it for about a minute because someone bought it.

Anyway, at least they're looking at the synth market again. I was getting worried there for a while.

Wish list: The reface line in rack module form.
