Per transworldmx:
Yamaha maintained its rearward-mounted cylinder, but to the naked eye, the engine looks to be mounted more upright than previous generations. An electric starter was mounted on Hirata’s machine, and the new cases have eliminated the kickstarter mount altogether, which indicate that electric start will be standard and not an option as it was for the Honda CRF450R in 2017.

Wonder how light the bike will be, while adding an electric start

New frame. Perhaps a little lighter to make up for some of the e-start.

I want to see a picture from above looking at how wide this bike is. Wonder if the new frame really slimmed it down.

Still looks a lot like an 05-08 Honda frame to me. Photo

losing the kick starter shaft, gears and spring helps mitigate weight also

Not directly overhead view but hard to tell how narrower it is.

Looks slimmer to me... hoping they took a big swing at the weight thing. That 17 Orange bike felt like a mtn bike compared to my 15yz. It's a 18yami or KTM for me.

I'll start saving right meow. Please Yamaha, a 250f with a big bore, SSS suspension, and an e start would change my life.
