Hey guys,

I was checking out Yamaha's European and Australian web sites, to see what bikes they are selling over there compared to here. I saw this WR450F that they are selling over there.


Here is a write up on it http://ymedc.introwe...450_2trac.shtml

Ya I've been watching the info on that for about 6 months now. That sucker really looks awesome. Man I would love to try that out. But $18,000 is just a hair out of my price range. :naughty:

Heck, Zach from http://www.motorcycle-brokers.com has them already. I think it was over $12,000 though.

Ohlins invented it approx. five to ten years ago

has anyone seen or heard of 2trac in motard set up.?
wouldn't that be a weapon.....fat front tyre too??
It would be great if they could set up rear drive in hydraulic and get rid of chains and sprockets all together.

Yeah, they did a review in mcn. The current british supermoto champ said he wasn't sure if he liked it (he prefers to back it in), but the roadracer that tested it was sold.

ya you would think you could eliminate a gear or two,with a full hydraulic system. no more chains ,sprockets wouldn't that be nice! suspension would work better. it'd be cool if it was just rear wheel powered hyd.with a slipper clutch for decel :naughty:

That is sweet, there have been a number of front wheel drive motorcycles over the years, but this seems like the best one to date.
