I was just told by Dr D who was told by Terry Beal at Yami that the entire 2010 YZ450 rollout has been cancelled until 2011 at the earliest.....

The reason ..... the marketing dept at Yamaha just received all the data from the 2010 YZF450 marketing initiative and the bike is just too darned ugly to be released as a 2010......so anyone waiting on the fence....go ahead and choose 2nd choice.....:thumbsup:

Ugly has a certain beauty to it. Witness the Glock, the M-16, the F-117, the Irish Wolfhound....

There is no way Yamaha would shelve the 2010 yzf450. The bikes already ran through production waiting to be shipped. These bikes were probably assembled 6 months ago. James Stuarte has one to test, JGR is testing it. It will be released. Thats what the 2009 bike was for. no changes so big changes for 2010

It was in Dirt Rider, and it was clearly a fake (The "engine" is a two-stroke.)

They'll be on here way before then. Besides, I already posted the actual bike a few pages back.:thumbsup:

That's 'cause the Irish wolf hounds killed 'em all! :thumbsup: Or are they just there to make up for the lack of wolves?

MXA mag seems to be hinting that the YZ450F will definitely have it's intake at the front of the engine, and exhaust at rear. It sounds like they already know, but aren't allowed to say. http://www.motocross...C5649F2DE5447F4

...its gonna be ... big $ (too) I bet.

Since the bike will be competing with 4 other major players in the market, what you can bet on is that the price will be competitive.
