There are many jokes I could make about the press release, but none are funnier than reality. Yamaha is trying to add value and uniquiness to a bike that truly has neither quality. A quick scan on Ebay shows it still depreciates just as fast as any other Japanese bike, and there are brand new ones sitting on dealer floors here, waiting to be bought. I figure someone must have been waiting for this exciting announcement, but I can't for the life of me figure out who that would be. I think I read in CW that they sold 2000 of these since inception. I would hardly call that an "overwhelming customer response".
