    Keep updating us about the shipment of this techno-glitz bike ya... One of the wanted 250's motard. I bet they cost just as much as the DrZSM.
    High rev but a light and vib-free bike!! (that's what most of the reviews from top bike journalist!!!)
    Just cant wait for it to reach here. Hahaha

    Time to back it in!!!

    i just saw the bike at hong leong todae!...looks almost like a drz actually..
    the wr250x and the wr250r looks like no diff except for the wheels and the rotor...the wr250x has a bigger wavey front disc brake...
    duno abt other dealers but frm wat i saw at hong leong, the tyres used for the standard is bridgestone battlax...quite interesting...
    have always been a yamaha owner all along...but if not for the fact tat I alrd hav a drz, I think I wud hav gone for the wr250x...hehe!..damn nice too!!..luv the yamaha blue color man!..

    since theres no side board...so looks like this bike is not meant to hav pillion or pillion has to suffer burnt thighs!!..hahaha..

    yup. it may be the rider.
    and the thing is, its the same rider, who owns a wrx and drz.
    but sometimes a bike spec might help a bit more.
    sheds the few needed 1 sec or 0.01 sec tht is crucial to your lap time.
    especially when the 250x is lighter, maybe it'll handles better.
    but heck its all debatable

    my comments are all based for track use only.
    not for road use. hehe.
    dont wanna encourage riders to speed on the road.

    I was very interested in the WR until I heard the price $15750 OTR without insurance. Went down personally to hong leong to enquire, no bull. Way overpriced for 250cc. Anyways bike undergoing homologation now and should be ready for registration few weeks from now.
    It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.

    it maybe a new technology and all with the efi.
    but how to attract ppl with a price tht scares ppl away.
    might as well get a 2nd hand 400cc bike and mod it with the money. hehe.
    HL pls revise the price!
    i was so looking forward to this bike since last year.

    hmm. considering tht too.
    i know the sexy wrf is a trail ready bike,
    but is it advisable to use it for transport
    and weekly trails?

    went to see it today.
    nice features.
    smaller built than the drz.
    smaller seat space.
    so pillion has to squeeeeeeze into the seat.
    seat height, not too high not too low.
