Stefan Everts won the opening GP in Europe on Sunday. He was riding the new YZF, displacement unknown. I can't wait to see the photos. I hope they have a new chassis and bodywork to go with the new motor.

The displacement is 500cc apparently and the frame is an semi-double-cradle shape, identical to the steel production Yamaha frames but made of Alloy.
Follow this link for info about last years works bike with an alloy frame: http://www.yamaha-ra...mx500/specs.asp

I'm still trying to get fit mate, I placed 1st in my B grade unlimitted race last weekend. :)

I have long been aware of the Rinaldi frames. If it makes it to production, I will most likely choose it over the CRF450R.
