It'd be a good excuse to unload a bike if you didn't like it, other than that I wouldn't worry too much. Optomistic advertising is a time honored tradition in motorcycling and realistically your chances of running at even 16k let alone 17.5 k on anywhere but the track are pretty slim.



Good for them for stepping up but I guarantee it's the legal dept. behind it, not any sense of culpability on Yamaha's part.

Man your panties are in a wad. Yamaha builds quality machinery and because of an electical sensor problem you slam them. Seek help. Yamaha admitted the error. They are correcting the error. Suppliers have their problems too. I'm sure Yamaha is working on it and before long all '06 models will be fixed.

Remember the Berliner motors ads for the Ducati 250 Scramblers back in the 60's? In 1966 the 250 suddenly jumped to 30HP without any internal engine changes!



False advertising is imposssible to prosecute effectively. Otherwise every single product you see on TV would be subject to legal action. Never gonna happen.

U think Yamaha would just make 17,500 rpm up as a sales tool? Not. Misinfo from land of rising sun I bet. Probly a little Power Commander action would do it maybe? Anyway, peak power is 14,500 as advertised so you just lose a little overrev, not such a big deal for street use...

I am riding new Husqvarna TE250, u may all kiss my bootay...

If the mfgs. all offered to buy back bikes they fudged the numbers on, I think we all would be in on that deal. Horsepower, weight, top speed, rpm's are all fair game in the ongoing battle for sales. Good thing Harley wasn't involved, as we know they are just pure evil anyway.
