Maybe 2 reasons:
-Most Yamaha USA corporate guys are cruiser guys and not interested. They've even had RTW riders on 660s offer to come by and see the bike in person and they refuse. For some reason they have ZERO interest in it?
-They way the bike is built or where it's build would cause the selling price to be very high in the US market compared to the competition.

You want one? Move to "lowly" old Mexico where you can buy one.

The bike is available just south of you of all places.

It's really a joke on Yamaha USA part from the outside in, but I'm sure the exact real truth is out there somewhere?
