Hey All- With Yamaha stepping up the Dirt Bike game by introducing several new models of late, does the FX steal the limelight the WR once had? If you were buying a Yammie bike in 2012 for non motocross applications, you buy a WR and presumably modded it, for some expense.
Now the new FX is $100 less, doesn't need to be uncorked, where does the WR fit? The FX will surely siphon off the WR buyers who originally just didn't want to mod a YZ for even MORE expense than it is to uncork the WR, which is a great platform. I look at my situation, I am interested in a 16 or 17 bike to replace my 12 WR. What does the WR offer to me? Nothing uncorked... we all know that.
Lots of selection is a great thing and I think we as buyers are the true winners! But I think the WR might be the odd bike out for lots of people in this forum that are regular "new" bike buyers, and I think there will be more FX riders in here as time goes on.
Just some food for thought. Im ready for spring....
