it does look good, but I don't think you'll be able to take that out on the dirt tracks that the YXZ is going out on. A more off-road capable motorcycle would be a more appropriate companion in my opinion.
It's funny, I've always thought of blue and white as a more Yamaha branded color scheme.
They're Yamaha USA colours. They did the same thing for the 50th anniversary... Although I'm surprised the the guys in GP on the M1's haven't been given block specials like the MotoAmerica guys... Rossi and edwards had yellow and black M1's at the 50th... maybe later
