That should be a pretty sweet scooter! I hope Yamaha USA brings it over!

I like that a lot. Do I like it more than the CB500F? maybe not. Nice niche size though.

I got all excited until I spied the cramped footrest area and the high placement of the footrests relative to the seating. I also spied the aggressive tilt to the footrests.

This is a bike I really really like. Too bad in the name of style they have set up the ergos to suit the average chimp; rather than large size human beings.

The 250 is 5150 here, the BV350 is 5500..

I seriously doubt the Xmax 400 will be under 7500 here.

I quoted you the price for France and most likely its surrounding countries (give or take a few euros). I don't know what the price in Croatia will be.

No one does yet, but the differences are usually not that big.

34hp is the limit for new riders in the EU's graduated licensing system, so it's not inconceivable a US version could be re-tuned. If the US price were translated across the board in dollars as frequently happens a price of $7000 dollars minimum would put this up against the Honda 700X, albeit without luggage at that price.

It's the Majesty 400 engine in it. I think they can just keep it "as is" for the US market. If we get the X-max 400 which I hope so because the Majesty could use a little facelift.
