Hey guys, im about to purchase a new 08 yzf450 but I have read somewhere on an american atv forum that there is rumours of a new quad being realesed with EFI and a new frame?

Is there any truth to these rumours?

I dont really want to waste 11k on a bike that ill want to update in 6months! thanks!!

I'd hope so, she's getting a bit old now.

Not much has changed since her release in late '03.

EFI wouldn't go astray.

Its in the november issue of Dirt wheels. It aint an April edition so I'm guessing its real.

First look photos only, from an undisclosed source. Good quality pics, have to be Promo ones.

Fuel injected, part alloy/part steel frame, looks horn, and get this 48-50" WIDE from the factory! Finally.....

At last race width models for the competition market for 09, Suzuki LT-R, CAN-AM 450X, KTM 450SX (not XC), and now the Yamaha. Took the ATV industry at least ten years to work this out, Hello!

Judging by the writeups and Photos the KTM 450SX looks to be the pick of the bunch. Nerf bars, Hydraulic clutch, anti vibe steering stem, lanyard kill switch, fastest engine in the class, and REAL.... I'll say it again REAL race style shocks. Finally a manufacturer can really claim race ready!

Did I mention that the Yamaha looks hot!
