Remember back when I hinted that the new '06 might have some issues with turning? The new bike looks good, so don't take this as a Honda vs. Yamaha thing, just collecting on a friendly bet. . . here's a quote from Transworld MX: "Through turns was where the bike needed some help. Much like its smaller brother, the YZ250F, the YZ450F felt uninspiring through ruts and berms alike, and the front end had a vague feel. It just didn't feel as if it would bite and take hold. While this could be remedied with some different offset triple clamps, it still is something that we feel is important. After all, how much is a fast bike worth if it doesn’t turn well?"
