WR Release Dates

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any reliable release dates in Colorado for both the YZ and the WR 450. My local dealer has one yz in July(more in August) and says no WR's are being released until Nov/Dec.

Let me know what you've heard.

I don't understand why Yamaha would release the info. on these bikes if they are still 6 months out on production? Kind of stupid. It seems to me that they will have to discount their 2002 426's pretty good since we know the 450 is coming. If thats the case, why continue to manufacture 426's for the last months of 2002 knowing you could get retail on every 450? They would be losing money on any 426 they produce from here on out due to discounts. I hope the 450's are coming much sooner than December.... if not, then Yamaha's marketing dept. is not to bright in my book.

Ridemore,

Not sure about Colorado but I've gotten conflicting reports both in Idaho and the dealers I called in Utah. Where I ordered my new WR450 they told me August. I called the other dealer here in Boise and they said December. I called three dealers in Utah; one said August and two said November/December. Vesco's in Brigham City, Utah had some Yamaha sales info and the ship dates from Yamaha said YZF's in August and WR's in November. I'm hoping August but realistically it will probably be November...just in time for winter. :)
