I was at the local dealership yesterday and the salesman said that they were about to go to the yearly show where they would find out what Yamaha would be offering for 07. He was in agreement that most likeky there would be a 700 Grizz with EFI, but there is no way of knowing for sure. Yamaha is very secretive about product releases!
Like most have said no one will know until June 12th when the new units are released. Not even the dealers as the release is the same day as the dealer meetings. More than likelt it will get the raptor 686 engine but am hoping for a 750cc and larger machine that is fuel injected and affordable unlike the Can-am 800 (formerly Bombardier). I am a power freak so I would be dissapointed if Yamaha doesn't make a 750 or 800 v-twin in a ute chassis. Can-am are making huge waves in the atv industy (ie: renegade) and would be a stronger force if they were more affordable. Up here in Canada the Bomb 800 with tires and rims will roll out of the show room for **** near $15,000.00. Way to expensive and I hope Yamaha doesn't follow there lead.
Those new Can-Am's(previously Bombardier)I hear are running about $15,000.00 grand! Throw in your taxes and a few add ons and it is even more! I sure hope Yamaha doesn't get as greedy as Bomb? But then again it would push our re-sale value up..........Irv
Probably the market is just getting flooded with quads, they are out selling sleds 4 to 1 or 5 to 1 now. Probably a lot of people buy one thinking they are the thing to have and then find out it is not for them and then sell? I know the price of Harley's sure came down, it has a lot to do with the market being flooded and a stronger Canadian dollar.....Irv
