New '16 WR450

I think they'd sell a lot based purely on Yamaha putting effort and R&D into a new WR450F. Then after the new-bike euphoria wore off it'd be back to the issues of weight/mass or any other comparison to KTM.

funny thing is, that you can see all kinds of new cars being tested and being photographed,

but with bikes...

it all seems quite a bit more difficult...

 

so... no news I guess...

anyone?

I'm hoping.....if not I'm getting a 15.

September is the new model info release time

Too many different BS rules and regulations for street-ability between the States which is a huge impediment to the big four making a fifty State street legal dirt bike. In Arizona we still have some options that'll allow conversion of about any bike to at least limited street use. One of the issues here is not blinkers and horns or brake lights and headlights but whether or not your machine has insurance to go along with the limited street tag....We're patiently waiting for Arizona to screw it all up like Cali has. Just sayin'.

Im aware of this but they could do it if they wanted to, it would pay off. Every where ya look people are asking for it and try to plate there current  wr's

They could make a Cali legal machine which would be plate-able in all 50 States, I suppose. But that would ruin perfectly good machines for those of us in the other 49 States.
