This is actually true. It's already documented. All that is left now before releasing the kit is paperwork.
This kit will be released as a service bulletin. It will replace the piston and cylinder and few more parts, but I can't remember what. Too lazy to look again too.
It will be valid for 5 years from date of manufacture of the machine, which means the 2016 guys will have 2 years coverage as of right now. The service bulletin will only be completed with the new parts if you have a burning oil issue and you bring it into the dealer. The dealer will first confirm the issue of the oil burning is not from a sinking, lack of maintenance or abuse, etc.
If all ok, the service bulletin will be completed and you'll basically end up with a complete new top end on your engine.
Hope this turns out and Yamaha steps up to the plate, cause too many owners have been left helpless.
