Not that it is going to help you guys in the US very much, but I'm shipping one to L.A from Australia in late January or early Feb to start my trip to Argentina. Happy to let you have a go if your in California then.

You headed down through Baja? Because you've a place to stay just this side of the border.

Your bike does, anyway.

I signed it. Though i dont think it will do much good. I will bet you that they will bring a street legal wr450 to the usa years BEFORE they import a xt660 here

Signed It / Fingers Crossed for the XT660Z in U.S.A.

Seems like a natural gap to fit. XR650L is gone and had to be modified anyway, F800GS has it's challenges and costs $$, KLR been around forever, ...............let's keep our fingers crossed.

Either an XT660 or the MT-03 would be a welcomed addition to my Garage. But judging by the time range of this thread, it ain't gonna happen.

wow this old thread is alive.

at this point in the game the 660 is not gonna happen in the US!
i was excited, but after talking with enough Yamaha reps, it's clear the top execs are not gonna sign it off. they have ZERO interest in the bike. one issue, a big one, they can't sell it cheap enough in the US. Yamaha is probably focused on a 800gs-class bike for the US anyway.

Had to check the date to see how old this thread is. Called Yamaha and their reply was buy the ST. Didn't understand why anyone would want its little brother. Go to shows and Yamaha has winches, cases, spot lights, roll cages, four wheel drive, convertible tops and all manner of crap on the ST to give you an idea of their notion of a dual sport. Nothing short of amazing. I like the 660 but think yamaha has replied to this petition long ago. And the ST is simply way too big for much of what I consider fun dual sport.

Many basic Harleys are selling at $18,000! The big four should wise up and bring top quality over and it will sell.
