yes its another diesel but at least its a yamaha. Saw this locally and couldn't resist. Only 18k miles, fully documented. Completely standard and unmolested except for the screen, polished rims and end can but the standard silencer was supplied in fairly new condition..
Not a great colour but its growing on me.

I'm happy to see any bike in this section, 2 stroke or 4.

That looks quite nice. I really like the colour.

Love these bikes.
I really want a white/purple/blue one someday.
The green is pretty rare I believe.

Green one probably rare for a reason. Yes , the white / purple / blue would be the one to have

I had one the exact same, the green looks much better in sunlight!

I believe this one of the last years Yamaha made them, with some SP enhancements and, according some some, a budget rather than "proper" Ohlins shock...Did my first track days on the YZF, made a great noise flat out from the airbox, I sold mine after it started using more oil than my LC (that's not an exaggeration) so keep an eye on the level, the oil light is level rather than pressure sensitive IIRC.

Yes I think the shock is just made under licence.
I enquired about the oil consumption and was told it wasn't too bad, though he would say that. As I understand some of them did and some of them didn't. Time will tell. I have a Trx850 and they have an oil burning reputation also but mine is fine. I think it's a Yamaha thing.
