why what's de diffs between this one and other trial bikes, except the seat and so on? I dont think they produce it any more. I was searching for it on the Yamaha world wide www a while back but could not find it.

But..will agree this one looks really good, would be great if it could one day end up in SA.  ;)

Youre right. I wonder where that is filmed, looks like Afghanistan without the Americans. Ah, I see it is Morocco. Would love to ride there.

This is the one I was looking at- (roadworthy)- New 2011 model out-  wonder why Yam sa don't sell them.
Not a dedicated trailie and really more versatile and silly fun. Could also probably mount sideways behind bakkie , a la pitbike and cart it around for more family orientated outings. Around town should be a fun pavement hopper with 6 liter tank should probably give 120km+range.

Anyway , seeing as the new buzz word these days are nimble and small, this should tick the box. :thumleft:

Yamaha had one out here a few years ago when they did the roadshow with the XT660Z

I rode the Tricker and really fancied it as an urban run around and probably would have bought one

Apparantly the price would have been to high and Yamaha decided not to bring it in

Thinks its just numbers game for Yamaha they wont sell enough in SA. Now small and nimble look at the 250wr dual purpose Yammie they got on their USA site. Roadworthy and all out the box.  :thumleft:

..wr250 Nice.....but still this is something quite different and unique i think.
Half trail/ half bmx, should be very light and numble....and lots and lots of FUN!.

ja hell I think this can be a load of fun if you not a full on trial rider or not wanting to go enduro racing/riding. And you can build or ride this thing anywhere were you can find a few obstacles.
