    My brother has had one for years. It is a surprisingly good DS bike once uncorked and geared. And absolutely bulletproof. Had Yamaha offered it in the 350cc to 450cc range back in 2008 it would have crushed the lightweight ADV bike world.

    The WR is a decent bike but they were always too expensive.

    When I bought my KLX250s in 08 the WR was almost 50% more. It's a better bike but not that much better.

    Regarding the future, Yamaha is continuously looking at new ideas and concepts to support and expand the market, as well as enhance our customers’ experiences.
    Yeah? Well here's a new idea...sell a 450 DS.
