Nothing important but just curious about what's your thoughts on when do Yamaha come out with a new design of the YZ450F. Any clues ?

Personally I think 2014, but you never know...

Since the fourstroke introduction Yamaha's new production-bikedesign interval has been 1998,2003,2006,2010

Not counting the 426, eh?

Just as a point of interest, work on the 2010 models began in 2006.

No, not counting the 426....it was a updated motor but still same design on chassi.

2010 bike: Oh was it that early !

Yamaha should redesign the shroud and fuel tank on their 2-smokes. Make them more like the Honda's so the graphics don't bubble

I could think of a lot more things I'd rather have updated on the 2strokes than the shroud/graphics. That would be cool though if it was same as the 250f shroud (like that kit that is sold in Europe).

As far as the 450 redesign, I would think that since this new gen is such a drastic change, that Yam has a ton invested in this backwards motor etc. Maybe '14, '15? With some big updates in between? I have no idea. This direction Yamaha has gone is very interesting.
