will you need to drop the suspension or cut the seat BULL ?
I'd buy that bike just to mount on the wall in my pub. Why oh why were they not available in Ruben's 65 days? I would saved loads of cash on maintenace.

But in all fairness, the KX's handle even worse than the orange bikes.

yamaha had another brilliant idea , instead of upgrading their ageing 20 year old bikes , they just introduced a new smaller model .

Ruben's 450 is state of the art. The 250 2T? Difficult to improve on perfection.

Thats no lie - I've been working and helping set one up, that on board blu tooth app is amazing. Just with your phone you can see all the temps, rpm's, speed and best of all you can build a map that is best suited for the terrain. All this within minutes. At the moment that 450 is streets ahead in technology. Its quite something. Not to mention the power and speed that bike has, its definitely not for me it will kill me.

This new 65 is a great bike but at 60K its a bit high compared to the KTM at 51/52K, How acan Yamaha justify this when they are selling YZ125's at R 69 000. Something is wrong

Is that a confirmed price? Thought it would be a little cheaper than the Ktm or at least the same price

The pricing is way over the top. But if it proves as relaible as its siblings it will still be cheaper to run than a KTM over a season. Time will tell. Thank goodness Ruben is on his last legs of competitive mx, these prices are crazy.
