RX 100 days are gone by, it's a history now, don't repeat HM Ambassador story - putting an Isuzu engine under the bonnet of a 1954 Oxford Morris... Like Rahul Bajaj said Yamaha should stress upon magic of logic rather than emotions and give us something more meaningful and contemporary.
YAMAHA should give us something more meaningful and contemporary.

Supra was a great bike. The first few were not so good. The later 11 BHP one were nice.

So they were real good ones.
Why don't the just combine 2 YBX engines to make a great 350. Something like someone here has done with a Suzuki Samurai.

nothing at all. But since they want to bring back the spares by mid April 09, hope this one will also be launched by that time. 2 birds one bullet ??
