I can't imagine it not coming to the states. What i wonder is if it will make it to Mexico. We have the older Tornado, not even the newer XR300E from Brazil. The Tornado is more off road, the XR300E is more on road. But maybe that's the reason we didn't get the 300E.
I would very much consider it. From the picture and dimensions, it looks to have a 33"-34" seat height, the same or slightly less than the KLX250S.
After all, it's just a trail bike, it's not intended to be an Adv Tourer, nor an Enduro. I rather like that, for my purposes. I would also rather have a Freeride, but I imagine it will be somewhere between double the price and unobtanium.
