Yes its street legal and fuel injected. Bike is a blast to ride. Getting around 70mpg too. I got it at Sportland in Bloomington IL. They gave me a good deal but I have bought several bikes from them so with my Nesba coupon ran 5800 OTD. Going to get it to the track eventually once its broke in. I been putting stuff on it since i got it and more is on the way. Built a skid plate and chain gaurd made axle sliders using all thread and skate board wheels.

How does that compare that compare to the Suzuki DRZ 400 SM? It seems to be about the same price, fuel injected, but smaller motor. What am I missing?

It isn't as dated looking as the DRZ and I think it would run with one from my understanding. I have been to 75mph with it so far and it has plenty left. I cant wait to get it completely broke in. It corners awesome.

Thanks for all the comments. I been waiting on this thing since Feb. I am glad the wait is over. First motard I have owned and absolutely not the last. They are fun to ride but I think they can get you in trouble too.Just like a woman can.

similar weight, similar power, and the 250 is a slightly smaller. yamaha is a six speed, drz is five. not sure of the wheel sizes, but the wr250 comes with funky sized tires 110/140

the other big difference is aftermarket. drz aftermarket is HUGE

They are starting to come out with more aftermarket everyday. FMF and dynojet have fuel controllers and Graves is building some stuff too. GYRT is suppose to come available in Aug. SS lines are out from goodridge now along with EBC pads.
Fuel injection is seamless works great. I am partial to yamaha too.The transmission is like butter. Best shifting bike I have ever owned and I have had my fair share.I don't know what they did to make it shift like this but all bikes should be like this.

When we were buying Mandys Vino, the sales guy told me I could get 0% financing for 6 months on that as well as her scooter. Was rather tempting. Great looking bike. Dave13 approves.
