Didn't yamaha make some kind of WR660?

11 posts in this topic

My cousin has a Raptor 660 atv. i remember a few years ago walking into a dealership and seeing a wr style yamaha bike that said 660 and had that same motor as the atv. what ever happened to that bike? or am i imagining things... it could have been in a canadian dealership, so possibly never came to the usa?

i work at a yamaha dealership and as far as a 660 CC dirt bike... it does not exist.... not from yamaha at least, and not in USA... maybe canada... but i doubt it... highly...

Your might be thinking of the TT600 that was offered in Europe for some time.

I rode one of these when I was in Germany a few years ago and it was a great bike. A little large, but much better than the XR600.

Here is picture of the street legal version. The one I rode was a 2001 and had Ohlins suspension and was more off road oriented.

First off, the Raptor IS watercooled.

Second, If you look at a closeup of the motor, you will see that the engine in those pics IS the '07 Raptor motor.

The TT600 is not the motor that the Raptor has, but the raptor 660 did come from a European Street bike.....I will see if I can find some pictures.

I always thought they were air cooled since they had fins. Your right, it probably is the same engine.

If I remember right, it was the MZ660 that used the same engine. I think they have a new enduro model out now.

WR 660? - now that would be nice and sure to give the Big XRs a run for their money!

Bring it on Yamaha! !!

Yes, the TTR motor is what the raptor did have air cooled and all! It now has the XT660 engine.

I have seen an xt 660 . It is in no way like a WR. It is a big heavy piece of crap like any KLX ,DR or any BMW adventure bike. Sometimes I feel like the guy on the bottom of this hammer :thumbsup:

To break the subject, I saw a home made ATV at Lorreta Lynn's a few years ago ridding around the pits that had blue Grizzly plastic and racks with a 250R front and rear end and a Raptor motor. It was COOL!!!! The motor question is kind of funny because the RZ350 became a Banshee. It would be nice if they would put the YZ motor in the YFZ frame and make it fast. I'd go back to ridding 4-wheelers then.
