A quick look at America's Most Diverse - Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, Home and a search yields no information on the bike. Not to be offered in the U.S., perhaps?

Tor, how was the airflow at road speed? The windscreen looks like it's almost vertical.

430 lbs. Dry!?!?!?
 
Hahahhahhah...where's my truss? But seriously folks, that's way too much weight for a touted "enduro" motorcycle. Hell, my City X weighed less!

A stock 1967 Bonneville weighed less, and was probably just as effective in the dirt. Faster even.

Back to the future. I guess if you plaster enough rally goodies on a '58 Roadmaster it'll pass for a "Paris to Dakar" tool too.

U.S bound?

US bound in ten years... Looks like more fun than a KLR but over 400lbs for a single? Dang...

I was kind of thinking it was going to put up a weight in the 330-350 range, like the old KLR's. Still, I like these kind of bikes, too bad it doesn't appear destined for the US, but the old model wasn't here either, so no suprise.
