    With a 6 speed and 67 kg weight, that certainly would have been news.

    Lord knows Yamaha will never give us a 6 speed, thus the absolute fiction of that "article" from last June. I wasn't to keen on the steel frame and conventional forks spec'ed either.

    Why the hate for the steel frame? Seems KTM/Husqvarna have gotten pretty good with the steel frame no?

    Who in their right mind would pay 10K for a steel frame dirtbike?
    The picture didn't match the specs was my point.
    Full disclosure- my steel framed 4 speed YZ450 was (is?) faster than my aluminum framed WR450.

    Can someone actually build a YZ500 so we can all just rub up against it already?
