look another bump in the road!
I come check this thread every other day or so hoping for some good news......... Will somebody hurry up and post it....... Hello, Yamaha, anybody home........
me too but it seems that by the lack of signatures that people here in thumpers are just not interested in getting this bike here for some reason it baffles me.
Yes, it does seem like more folks would sing it.
I would like some responses as to why there is no interest in this bike coming here?
Maybe someday, somebody at Yamaha will figure it out????? We can only hope.
Because it seems to be a bit of an underpowered pig. I already own an underpowered pig. It's a nice looking machine but doesn't appear to bring anything new to the table, hence my lack of interest.
Hopefully Yamaha will make note of this and do something about it.
238 and i've been pushing my regional Yammi rep to hammer it into his bosses head that we want this bike.
so if it had more power you would be clamoring for it?
It would certainly be more interesting if it had a higher power to weight ratio.
I'm sure it's a fine machine and I would like to have it available here but, realistically, I don't think were missing out on something special. And I was one of those who was super excited when Yamaha initially announced the bike. It definitely looks sweet.
DRZ400 has a few variants, the K (kickstart only, not sure if it's still in production), the E (electric start, maybe a kickstart backup, not street legal), and the S (street legal, electric start only).
The E and K have higher compression, different carb, and cam, so the numbers on an E are probably higher.
That being said, an E has 48hp, according to:
EDIT: On the original topic, not going to sign any petition b/c I won't buy a $9,000 thumper. Just got a used KLR, can't imagine trading it unless the the Tenere had huge power and good economy... and it doesn't sound like it does.
Noticed no pics of one yet. Her ya go, now you don't have to leave the thread to see it.
I just wish all vehicles were available in all areas.
Like why couldn't I buy an R34 Skyline? :huh
Why the lack of interest? I've been a Yamaha fan since the DT-1 but in todays economy I am on a DR diet. It could be worse, I could still be riding a DT, or worse yet a KLR.
I was at my local dealer yesterday and they had a poster of one on the wall. I guess it doesn't mean it is coming to the states but it is a pretty good indication.
I love my KLR it's way better than my old TS185..
He he Guys, only to the knowledge:
-9000$ are 6238 (at the moment!!)
-Price for the Tenere last Year in Germany: 7500 (mine!):eek1
-Inspection 1000km - 120, 10000 - 220, 20000 - 320 (Yamaha!)
-gasoline consumption 3,8 to 5,5ltr (max Speed/Winter)
-consumption with Alucases/two bags (during two weeks in scotland) 4,5ltr
-moves like a tank through the area at low speed
Ok, ok, 48hp and 160km max. Speed doesn´t sound much, but everyone has his own preferences and in the right hands even a piece of paper becomes a weapon...!!
Give these guys a chance and sign it..
signed..........................bring it on!
