    I think it's a great looking bike, and probably a good weapon if you are a four stroke guy, why couldn't they put this kind of effort into the YZ250x? It's still a moto bike at it's core, no lighting coil and no hope for a plate! I guess it's good for XC/GNCC though....

    The big four handed the off road market to KTM on a silver platter. Catching up on European two strokes isn't going to happen with a very dated YZ. Unfortunately for Yamaha, reversing the four stroke engines pretty much insures future two strokes can't share frames. (Unless they have an Ossa up their sleeve)
