The reasoning I heard was to distribute risk. If Excel suddenly ran out of rims, not all of the Yamaha bikes would be affected since they also source the DID rims. I think I read this in one of the bike rags.

Well what about Excel rims? Why does only the yz250f have DID rims? :naughty:

Interesting look at the Yamaha frame.

Looks more like a perimeter design than the old backbone design.

(I kept thinking this is a KX250F painted blue. It is April.)

Also, the scalops are gone in the alu frame.
