On the Yamaha Website they have modified the 06 sled release banner. Check it out, Yamaha Snowmobiles. Looks like a ditchbanger is coming! God I hope it doesnt look like the RX/RS sleds. I want a new design in retro yellow/black!!
The Yellow/Black combination is a classic Yamaha MX colors. The pic on the Yamaha website shows a yellow handguard attched to the handlebars of what I am assuming is going to be a new ditchbanger, or race sled. I think the color they chose and the fact that its a handguard are significant signs, they are coming after the hardcore market, people that like to beat on their machines. Sign me up!!! I bought a new sled this year and wasnt expecting to buy an 06', if Yamaha comes out with the product I am hoping for, I just might trade in my 99'. This is pretty exciting, cant wait for the 7th.
