Yamaha WR450R?????

Any rumors of Yamaha producing and bringing to the US a WR450R. I had a riding bud that had the WR250R. It was a really nice bike, but I can't help but wonder how nice a 450 version would be.

But if you want to RIDE instead of wait for a bike
which may never ever exist, buy a used KTM EXC
with an RFS engine. The 2007 model year KTM is the
only year which came street legal from the factory, and
that will matter more in years to come because it's
going to become increasingly difficult to sneak dirt bikes
past the DMV by just adding lights and a horn and
maybe turn signals if the state requires those.

That link gave me a bunch of older info...I was hoping to find some updated rumors. I just sold a 11 KTM 530EXC...I want something less maintenance/more reliable. I know the RFS engine was more reliable, but I don't know how much luck I'd have trying to track down a fairly local, nice used one. Thanks, though.

Probably be out the same time as the CRF650 and 690 Adventure.

Over at the WR250R/X forum they call it "The Blue Unicorn."

Everyone wants TBU, except Yamaha for some reason. Evidently, Yamaha hates making money.
