the new wr250x set to replace the aging ttr.
has a 6 speed ,titanium valves,liquid cooled top speed of 150kmph.according to geoff ballard u can hold the throttle to the stop from darwin to sydney. smooth as and FI.

service intervals -oil change -5000kms,oilfilter-10,000, clutch 20,000kms and valve check-40,000kms.
needs a larger rally tank-yamaha make one -25ltr.maybe a seat and some racks.
dry wt -126kgs.

sounds bullet proof to tour/off piste/
power to wt ratio is phemoneol.
revs to 10,000rpm.
should unleash bout 40kw ,throwing out the euro3 pipes and installing a pc.
has rare earth internals electric systems from the R1.
sounds better in terms of serice and lonevity than the klrs.drs etc.

I'd like to see a more comfortable R version in a 450.
