Interesting...1988 TDR-250 vs. 2012 Duke 390

While perusing some other motorcycle info, I came across the specs for the 1988-1993 Yamaha TDR-250. This was one of the first cross-over motorcycles, a TZR-250 2T street/sport bike engine in a standard street / DS frame, half fairing, and long(er) travel suspension (6.3/5.9" f/r).

I loved the TDR-250 concept, but very few ever made it to the USA. Does anyone in Canada or OZ have experience with them?

The specs are almost identical to those of the Duke 390 4T being offered today. Perhaps a reflection on the TDR will shed some light on the new small Duke?
