Yah I was at international today. I was gonna trade my bike but there wasn't anything cool. Just carbed 2 strokes.
@Clayx - just wait for the May announcement:
Were you lookin to trade the 350 or 501?
I wonder who will be next to announce their EFI 2 strokes; Beta? Sherco? Yamaha? Or, will the move to EFI cause Yamaha to bow out?
Still not cool enough
Yeah, but how much does it weigh?
Weight. Who cares? Clay's getting a "woodie" thinking how he can get the shingle mills pumping out these beauties.
A sub 200 pound inline 6 diesel / electric would be cool.
Or maybe a carbon fibre steam bike. That would be cool.
A night rider powered by moon beams would be awesome as well.
Pffffttttttt.....a 2stroke fi. Not cool.
C'mon Clay, I know you miss riding a 2-stroke.
Not really. Disgusting polluters.
Good news. And they are zact saame as last year.
Love the color scheme -- orange frame plus black wheels is the dog's balls.
You Sure Like Dogs Balls.
now Sherco is ready to pull the trigger on FI
Yep, Sherco was (supposedly) ready 18 months ago with their FI 2-strokes. I have not heard much out of the Beta camp, but I don't expect them to be caught with their pants down.
Not sure what the story from Yamaha will be. Will they continue to offer the YZ125/250/250X as a simple and cheap alternative to the technology leading Euro bikes, or join the party? In a year or two, the YZ250X, if left unchanged, could be $3000+ cheaper than the Euro bikes.
My Koolaid goes beyond just one colour!
