    Why change a good bike. Sill the best suspension. Still the best looking and most innovative. Was the 2nd lightest, but now that the Honda has gained weight maybe it's the lightest. It is even lighter than the ktm 350. And, it is the most reliable.

    And still the most inovative and reliable bike on the market. Pretty standard for yamaha, they only do new models every 4 or 5 years.

    I'm just glad that the manufacturers are still involved in off road and MxSx racing at all. Keeps a lot of people I know employed.

    Were you actually in the market for one? Which one will you be buying instead?

    I won't be buying one. BNG when Stewart got rid of that fat pig. Sales numbers will match the amount of effort they put in to lightening the bike and improving it.
