Yamaha To Discontinue Blaster & Banshee

Yep, it's true. Yamaha has determined it's too expensive to continue to fight with environmental concerns regarding "dirty" bikes (= loud two-strokes). 2006 will have special edition Blaster and Banshee versions, and then they will no longer be made. The used market is going to get tight!

We'll watch to see what happens to racing divisions that were just starting to bloom for the Blaster.

Re: Yamaha To Discontinue Blaster & Banshee

yep the blaster and banshee are going to be discontinued BUT 2 strokes are not out of hte picture yet!! I have a 450r and love it but it looks as though 2 strokes may be the original AND the wave of the future!!
2 strokes making a comeback!
