Here is another fact you guys probably wont believe, it will be red and white in color. no joke.


I hope you're right so when the time comes, you can tell everyone that you told them so.:crazy: I also hope you're right because red and white bikes are sweet.

Red and white used to be the European Yamaha color scheme ..... and a la the 1997 YZF that Henry rode. This would be interesting...and will surely piss off the Honda boys

It can and has been done, yes, but note the statement, "Adding this function to the EMS requires considerable enhancement of its processing and memory, as direct injection plus the engine speed management must have very precise algorithms for good performance/drive ability."

Given that the current level of sophistication in MX EFI systems does not even include oxygen or barometric sensors, don't expect to see electronic direct injection systems on a dirt bike for a while.


Is this your personal opinion or do you have reputable knowledge.

I believe it, those are their international racing colors, or were at least at one time. I'll also take mine in yellow and black please, hold the red, hold the blue.

You know what I mean. :crazy:

A better way to put it would have been their main color scheme is going to be red & white instead of blue & white.

Let's face it, Yamaha has taken this engine and basic platform as far as it will go and still be competitive and it's about time they came up with "something" that seems inspired. Color scheme will not help or hurt sales, US new bike sales are down + 30% and getting financing tougher by the second. New bike or not, it will remain to be a tough year for new dirt bikes that fetch close to $ 9k...

Go by your local Yamaha dealership and look at the sign, It should be red and white now. I don't know how much the bikes,race teams etc. are going to change, But I do know they're changing there blue and white logo to red and white.

Yep at my local shop they have the racing/pit crew type shirts and the are all red with a big white Yamaha logo on the front.

I also noticed that while watching SX on TV if they sponsored the ticker at the top of the screen it was a red/white logo as well.
