    That's a Good Deal for Thailand :D Now if Yamaha can sell them at a Comparable Price With Plate we will be really Cooking :wink: The WR250 & 450 are Road Legal back in NZ. The XT660 should be around 400.000 Baht judging by that?

    But are they road ridable??? Here in Aus, most enduro bikes are road registrable, because you need to have them registered to ride in any public space, like state forests... but the Honda dealer told me that the the XR250s are no good for road riding, because of the way that the engines are designed... they need to be constantly on either full load or no load...

    Not sure if the Yamaha bikes are the same...

    Cheers,
    Daewoo

    Darryl check out Honda NZ web site and the XR250 is now sold as a Farm Bike so i doubt Farmer Brown is Blasting all over his Farm at Full throttle??? Luke is riding his CRF Motard on the Road and My friends in NZ rode their XR650R around the South island. Mark Rossi is more the Expert but from my understanding the WR is the Enduro Version, Wider Ratio Gearbox and a little less Brutal and More User Friendly compared to the Motocross Version. Reliability over the Long Term is also very Important.
