Available in March 2004 in Europe! 2 wheel drive!

Dealer told me last night, now it's on the yamaha France site: 2 Wheel drive 450 F

The bike will have Ohlins front forks and rear shock.

The front wheel will only be driven as soon as the rear starts slipping............

Here are some pictures :

I bet this thing does great in mud races! :)

Finally !

I wonder how much it would cost to add this set up to my bike ? :D

Just for fun :):D

It surprises me a little that they'd do 2 different types of drives. Why not make the front and rear hydraulic?

Anyway, the thing looks very cool. I bet it helps a ton climbing hills.

what do you think this would do for the supermoto bikes?? :)

Chain is still one of the most efficient means of transferring power, reliable to.

VERY cool. Now, if we could only get a larger fuel tank for these bikes....

hmmmm!?......works when rear wheel starts slipping.....that would be anytime the throttle is twisted! Must be full-time 2X2. :)

I bet it weighs a freakin ton.

Sure would like to test drive one. I may have to go back to France for work soon. Will try to get some info.

Wonder if you have get off the thing and lock the hub like the first 4x4's :)

Wow how cool, a 2 wheel drive bike... BTW ETP I think these babys are full time.

...or if they've got 2-Low! :D

I don't really think it will help much on hills. My front wheel is never really on the ground when I am climbing something steep. :)

The cost is about $16 000 over here (Sofia, Bulgaria, Eastern Europe)...
