You'd be surprised what you can get done on that KLR especially with those raised links. Even more if you put $1k in to the suspension (Ricor or Cogent Dynamics). And remember, it's a KLR...you will...

I've read up on the XT660Z Tenere quite a bit. 48 HP and 43 ft/lbs but conventional forks and a lot of plastic to bust up at 400 pounds. To me it seems its a second generation KLR with a motor that's...

I would definitely take a look at the FJ-09. Yamaha is billing it as the "do it all motorcycle". They are starting to show up at dealers so you shouldn't have too wait long to get a test ride on one....

Beta repeatedly uses phrases like "entry level" when describing the new X-Trainer. Not to mention, the name X-Trainer. I'm not sure what to make of that.

I think either the people who posted those prices in this thread or the dealers they spoke to are confused or mistaken. If anything, those are OTD prices on FZ-09's.

Yamaha corporate has the $10,490 up on their website. A dealership selling a brand new product likely to be in high demand at a $1500 discount is very, very unlikely.
