Looks like a TW with some new plastic bits to me. I have a 2008 TW that I can't wait to get rid of. Thought it would be a real hoot as a trail bike, but compared to an actual trail bike with with taller, narrow tires the TW isn't nearly the bike I thought it would be. As the local Husaberg dealer noted: "It's a great bike to run down to the mailbox with."

I sure wouldn't get one - but if you did, at least it would distinguish you from all the old farts that hang TWs off the back of their RVs. And it would maybe look okay out in a field, when you're moving irrigation pipe in the mud.

I just showed this bike to my girl and her eyes lit up. So far this is the most excited she has ever been regarding a bike. She also likes the XT250......She seems to like the retro styles Yamahas.

It would make a great "pit" bike....especially on muddy days! This would also make a good farm/ranch bike were mud and cow shit are everywhere.

No, serious........ Instead of this kinda stupidity, they should run the real-life XT660Z Tenere stateside, that's an ADV-bike!! Or even the R or X for that matter.....

Is it automatic? cos it would make it easier for the clowns to change gears with those big long shoes they wear.
