I agree the WRR has been the only somewhat modern dual sportish bike in 20 years out of Japan.
But it came out in 08 and hasn't changed since in familiar fashion.

Rocky Mountain Flea Market

Clarke KTM RFS gas tank translucent is meant for 04-05 models I think but will fit others. I bought it for my 03 but the kickstarter isn't right for the tank.

$80 near Fort Collins.
