$17,099 !! Double Christ.....I felt like I'm on a pretty good wicket, but I can't afford that.
Lol, I really like it.
Only thing I don't like about the newer models though is the reverse engine because it makes it impossible to install a decent size tank.
It's only money.
I was looking at getting a newy at the end of the year.
I’m waiting for the next limited edition
In my continual bleating around all things "450 Adventure" bike, why can't Yamaha build a WR450R ? , along the lines of the 250, which has sold, across the globe, in solid numbers since the beginning of time. Such a gap between 250 to the 700.
I'll accept slightly softer tune for longevity/service interval, 1.5 litre sump, a decent tank size and solid subframe. I'll sort the rest. Really not to much to ask is it?
A big part of the success of the WRF in Australia has been its sharp pricing
It's defintely a good bike, and in the past has been pretty exceptional value
Hard to know how well it will do if sold for the same money as an EXC / FE
one may hope the success of the Tenere may give them a bit of confidence the market might be there and raise the possibility, but don’t hold your breath
If they made a 450R I'd join the cue and get one and I probably could get rid of 3 bikes.
I could, but I wouldn't.
I’ll just have to make do
Numerous years ago a Yamaha sales manager spoke about the WR250R and what Yamaha Australia thought about it. Stated that Yamaha won't build a bike like it again. Basically they built it too good. It was technologically more advanced than any Yamaha off road bike at the time. Long service intervals, incredibly reliable bike. The shops make very little money from the WR250R. Little spares sold, little servicing done.
^ Maybe I should go find another and tuck it away.....
Do it ! But then I want a go
How are you finding the T7 ? I like the look fo that bike. Could be a possible replacement for the F800GSA one day... (Like a very one day)
I have often wondered the same. Along the same lines, why has no manufacturer jsut made a Dakar style bike ? It's proven, it's there why do we keep getting weird front ends instead of jsut a tower ? The T7 and the 660 Tenere are the closest I've seen.
the F8 is like a comfy lounge chair, the T7 is a more raw dirt bike feel by comparison
I like them both for different reasons
Had one. Wish I had it again. Except for the constant kickstart spring breakages, used to carry a spare in the bum bag.
Was a beautiful one on FB the other day. Was thinking seriously. It had the COVID tax on it though.
Maybe not as many riders want a tower as you think.
And there is the KLR650 as well.
I'm liking the look of that Aussie special but around here,
The tractors are red
and the bikes are blue
just won't do.
blues ok, but you have to mix it up a bit
