Does anyone have inside clues for 2006 Yamaha's? I heard that at least the RX-1 will be fuel injected, have 9 more horse, 6" rider forward position, and they are moving the adjuster for the rear suspension from the floorboard up to the handlebar area. What else has anyone heard?

This is the second time I have heard about a turbo. I was in the Yamaha dealership last night talkin to the salesguys, and a customer said he also heard that a turbo was going on a unit.

That sure confirms the rumors. Must have been in Minoqua WI. Can't wait. Yamaha-Motor.com shows a handgaurd in front of the handlebars in the banner for see the 2006 on Monday. Can't wait.
Thanx for the pix we didn't see :)

My buddy's son works for Yamaha and the word is Yamaha will NOT offer a 2 stroke engine next year, only 4 strokes.
