    It's only a concept vehicle right now. I'd sure consider one.:D

    LOL! I couldn't imagine pumping up those gigantic tires with that hand pump!

    It's not a hand pump, it's a cock enlarger for the guys who would never consider riding something this small in CC's:D

    I'd love to see a bike like that go into production.

    I like the concept, but that thing looks ree-fucking-diculous.

    Evidently Yamaha is using a similar approach to Honda in developing one engine to be used in a variety of platforms.



    They have developed this to compete against the CBR250 and Ninja 250.

    Looks cool. But then I think the TW200 looks cool!

    I like it. It would fit right in here. I also like the TW200.

    I'm sorry but that's gotta be one of the ugliest bikes I've seen in a while. I'd only take the headlights from it. Haha

    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.
