Today my local Yamaha dealer says that he just received a bulletin from the factory regarding the new YZ. Key points are: 450cc, seperate engine/trans oil, lighter than tbe Red CR450--even with electric start. The bike is to be released in July. Sounds too good to be true, I wonder how light it would be w/o the e-start? I hope they don't elimate the manual kick start lever like Suzuki did with the DRZ. That way we can take off the battery and starter to save weight.
