    Not in North America. Love that rear disc brake. If it has a 6 speed tranny I'll want one. http:// http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...22523&page=111. Go down towards the bottom its bright yellow. Capt D.

    Here you go:



    The Yamaha







    Through its official website, Yamaha plans to launch SUV motorcycle, XTW250 Ryoku. Why is so called because Yamaha claims this bike has high toughness and utility work.



    Design key of this bike is “unrestricted, anytime, anywhere”. So Yamaha XTW250 Ryoku can be used anywhere without any restriction.



    The Husqvarna







    Since the 1960s, the scrambler quickly gained traction as the idol motorcycle for those seeking both on- and off-road adventure, attracting the likes of many, including the legendary Steve McQueen.



    As the scrambler gained more and more notoriety throughout the years, it was only a matter of time before manufacturers began releasing classic remakes of the scrambler. These started arriving, but with tasteful modern technology.



    Husqvarna is now in the game; the company owned by BMW unvelied its Concept MOAB at the EICMA 2011 in Milan Monday, which is Husky's "re-interpretation" of the scrambler.



    Speaking of the machine's name and origin, Husqvarna says the MOAB can "trace its origins to our models from that period, legendary bikes that are milestones in the history of off-road biking, especially in the U.S. This is one reason for the name MOAB, after the evocative desert in Utah, which every year draws huge numbers of off-road bikers and provides the eerie background for the sets of many cult movies."



    Of course, there's all the Husky styling, from the red tank to spacious seat and "simple, stripped-down" frame. The MOAB features a 650c engine on a perimeter frame, and progressive linkage on the swingarm.



    The Husqvarna Concept MOAB rolls on 17-inch wheels and semi-knobby tires, making it ready for the off-road, offers high and wide handlebars for nice ergos, and a bulky tank for the legs to hug.



    Speaking of the design, Husky says "The overall design effect divides the bike into distinct sections: the tank, seat, the side panel number holders and the exhaust. The lines are fluid but combine to create a decisive form.



    "The shape of the tank blends with the seat and rear section, creating a fluidity and immediately distinctive style. This design feature follows the lead of the latest generation of Husqvarna models, such as the concave shape of the front and rear mudguards, and the front number holder. Tradition and high-tech innovation are successfully blended in the details of the new Concept MOAB: the digital instrument panel that is situated in the upper crossbar or the LEDs on the front number holder and the tail-light.



    "The color scheme, down to every last detail, both in bodywork and mechanics, is taken from Steve McQueen's immortal H400. The unique form and colors give the MOAB an exhilaration vintage look."



    With the Concept MOAB, Husqvarna begins yet another trek in the motorcycle industry, this time chasing the scrambler tradition that has many roots in the US. This comes after Husky unveiled its first-ever street bike earlier this year, the Nuda 900. Ideas are evolving at Husqvarna...wonder what's next?

    I hope they do build and import the XTW250 to the US.

    According to the write-up in The Kneeslider it is just a concept bike.

    But since it has a totally new frame I am thinking it may become real.

    Neat update to our fun bike.

    Still needs an oil cooler stock though...

    Hmm..... it's interessting to see a new TW concept.

    But...... it looks a bit too extreme this version.



    I makes me very happy, that they still spend some minds on the TW.

    I thougth at first, that the production from the TW will be canceled/ended, because the last TW125 was build in 2004 and the last TW225 in 2007.



    I hope, that Yamaha will show us soon the final version from the TW250.

    And I realy hope, that they will sell the TW250 in Europe.



    Regards, Sebastian

    I think the XTW250 would sell well in the U. S. of A.



    Yamaha should hire me, as one of the riders with the most miles of TW experience in the U. S. of A., to costar with the XTW in a made-for-television series with the two of us riding the top adventure roads in North America. Maybe include another man with no motorcycle experience and a hottie who is constantly pulling off her riding gear to flaunt her sports-bra. Film crews would need to hopscotch location to location in 4x4 trucks and a helicopter. As an experienced teacher, I could easily include a riding lesson component to each show, along with the awesome scenery, hottie partial nudity, crashes, riding, bbq, and pie.



    EDIT: I could do without the hottie, but if ratings demand ... . Better yet, my riding partner would be a girl-next-door type, one of the typing pool with no motorcycle experience, preferably of average everything, whose success would be a major encouragement to the folks who would like to ride to actually do so.

    Looks to me like Yamaha has been spying on our forum here. The only mods on that bike that I haven't seen here on this site already are a 6-speed trans and 250cc engine... and we talk about that all the time! Skid plate, rack, lighting hand guards, windshield, bigger tank... sounds kinda familiar. This will be an $8K+ bike by the time it gets to market. and this is all about marketing. It would be nice if the TW makes it to 25, but would not be surprised if didn't. The dual-sport category IS growing.
    Something witty...
