Re: New Yamaha's for '06 - ally frame pic (Toxic)

So they totally redisgned the alu frame for the 250? This is just a guess, but that thing looks a bit on the thin side to put a 450 motor in. Also, why would you paint an alu frame? Paint is heavy you know...

paint is an easy way to cover up ugly aluminum. how many asian bikes come polished?

Re: (Nick Novice)

Yeah, but I figured they'd just go with a "cast", bead blasted, or brushed finish rather than take the extra time, steps, & $$ to paint (of course clear anno might be more expensive...?). Then again, this might just be a prototype, I'd expect that the production bikes would come sans paint (as the 250 does now).
