Any new 350-650 Japanese dual sport with fuel injection?

Just wondering if there are any new Japanese dual sport 350-650cc bikes with fuel injection coming in the near future?

People have dreamed about the Japanese coming out with a competitive dual sport for a long while now and nothing has come to fruition. The only company I can see taking a shot is Yamaha since they build the only decent street legal 250 with the 250R. I do not think any of them are going to step up and make one, you need to think Husky/KTM or Beta at this point - all great choices and you will not be disappointed riding any of them.

The Yamaha XTX or Z or whatever they are,we the only ones I can think of.

But I don't believe they are available in the US.

Oh and they are 660, so they don't fit into your question anyway.

Maybe Honda will surprise us with a 450l when they release the new Africa twin...

time will tell, but I think he's secretly sold on an EXC500 like everyone else. He craves a modern FI bike.

Yup, in the mean time KTM swallows up the entire market with only Husky (now essentially KTM clones with minor variations) and Beta left as options. Beta only has FI on the smaller bike, but I "think" they are planning to offer FI on the larger 430 etc. bikes soon, but we'll see.

I don't get it, the Japanese sold tons of dual sport bikes going back to the '70s but now, they are content to just sit on their collective hands and offer the same old bikes they've been building for a decade or more.

I wish somebody offered a modern street legal 450 with FI and a wide ratio 6 spd trans.
