Checked out the new YZ450F's.
« on: July 12, 2013, 12:30:29 PM »
Picked up a rear tire for buddies CRF last night and my dealer has 3 in stock.I have to admit,a very impressive machine up close-very open and uncluttered for a 4t.Even the gas cover thingy fits and locks in well-not as hokey as it appears.It seems tall standing beside it.I'm a 32 inseam and the seat top was easily at my waist.
Anyhoo,I asked him where the new YZ250's were and he said" there are none-they're already perfected,what would you change?" All I could think of was a steel backbone frame and maybe plastic. :)
So there you go,the definitive answer on why there are no new 2t's.I should have known,it seems so obvious now.  8) ;)

I'd rather a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

Funny you should mention that, I had a similar answer from my local dealer today about why Yamaha hasn't changed much. He asked me why I thought perfection should be changed  ;D  I'm sure Yamaha would jump on the FI band wagen when other 2T companies start producing them as well for off road use.

     They could at least bring the motor up to   KTM 250Sx   standards.

I want them back in the steel framers. Those frames rock. Oh and back to different standards. On their site it says 8.9-10.6 comp ratio for the 250? Sod that. Putting it up to proper Aus, USA and UK standards would be better.
