What color id your 06 going to be?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Just trying to get a feel for how popular the Anniversary model is going to be. There are only 100 made and I have no idea if that is the USA allotment, or worldwide. I am #1 in line for either but don't want to pass up a blue yammie if the yellows are not going to be as available as our dealers insist they will be. Thanks!

I am 1st in line for a 50th anniversary model @ 6260 OTD.

I had not heard of the 100-unit limit for the anniversary model.

If this is the case I probably will not get one. Too many dealers not enough to go around.

Perhaps if your dealer is a high volume dealership, you'll get it this week :banghead:

If not, plastic and seat covers are cheap - althought the graphics can be a little spendy. Who says you can't celebrate without paying them to do it???

If I get an 06, it might be blue but most likely green or red.

Blue hear, but may which to yellow when I feel like it and won't cost me the extra $200.

Really?? Only 100 of the Anniversary edition? That doesn't make sense considering the # of Yamaha dealers there are across the country....especially since they are only charging an extra $200 for the Yellow version. If they are only making 100, I'd think that they'd ask alot more. I'd also assume they will be a collector piece and not one to ride. Just my .02 !!!!

100 YZ250F's and 100 YZ450F's. From Yamaha of Japan's website:

On September 20, 2005, Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. will release a limited edition of 100 units of a "YZ250F 50th Anniversary Special Edition" model of the highly competitive "YZ250F" motocrosser that mounts a liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC single-cylinder 5-valve compact engine on an aluminum semi-double cradle frame. This commemorative special edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the founding of Yamaha Motor

if there is only gonna be 100 of the yellow ones, the plastic makers are gonna make a killing off of a yellow kit and graphics.

want yellow, asked for yellow, might be on blue (at least temporary).

I thought it was 1,000?

Owell. I won't get a 06 for another couple of years when they are for sale used.

Well, I guess if you look at it that way, if 20% are to be yellow, that would mean there will be 500 250f's and 500 450's in the states this year. I don't think that's the case. I wonder how many units they sale each year? I would think it's closer to 2,000 each.

Wow; even though the thread is young, I am suprised to see the interest in the yellow scoot - most people shrugging off the additional $200. I hope everyone who wants a yellow YZ-F gets one. I'm still first on the list but now will likely just take the first of the 3 alloted, no matter the color. A dealer has no real way of knowing that they are indeed getting a Anniversary model. I would venture to say that if you're a high volume dealer, expect to get one. I also wouldn't be surprized to see some dealers holding onto their Anni editions for display purposes -

Thanks for the numbers SUnruh

buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. thanks for playing. a nice parting gift for you.

they most certainly DO know!!!

my connection knows exactly where their 2 blue ones and 1 yellow one are right now. (that they are getting in the next 14 days). the LE seems to be 1 week behind the blue ones.

and they are not exactly a "high volume" dealer, but have increased their sales dramatically from just last year.

I'm getting yellow. If you're quoting them above, it may mean exactly that - "On September 20, 2005..." - it could just be the first batch, then they could make more later... :banghead:
