Is there any speculation that Yamaha will come out with a new design this year? It is funny how there are pics for all the 2012 Yamaha's except for the WR:thinking:Just wondering...

It would not suprise me to see yamaha discontinue the WR/F line altogether.

Its yz counterpart has, as far as Ive seen, always out sold it, and right now the big 5 aren't exactly seeing record sales.

This (clearly) is just speculation and a guess on my part, I am not a high up Yamaha employee :ride:

I don't like your speculation.... Why would you say such a mean thing? :lol:

Can you waltz upstairs and ask the honchos what is going on with the fuel injected street legal WR for 2012. :ride:

Yeah, economy is tuff, investment in a new wr isnt likely IMO. And do they sell that many WR's anyway? They should since by all/most accounts are pretty rock solid.

The FI models in the yz version are heavier so I'm not sure I want to add to an already heavy bike on the WR.

I like the bike..I do wish it had a 6th gear though..they can keep FI.

Unfortunately (for you) yes on FI, but no sixth gear on the 2012 - will still be a five speed.:ride:

Looks like the WR got the full monty. Backwards engine, FI, the works. the bike looks beautiful!!

I'd like to see a 250 or 300 WR 2 stroke, if KTM can sell them why not yami?

The WR450F has been Australia's top selling motorcycle for quite a few years as far as I know!

(Apart from a special 110cc Honda that is sold exclusively to "Australia Post", there's a million of them, but they don't count)
