(1998 / Production Model)
Designed for the Japanese market where users generally avoid models with a large chassis and high seat height, this lightweight, compact trail model debuted in 1997. It had a 2-stroke 224cc single-cylinder engine fitted with a traction control system, a newly designed frame, front and rear suspensions providing a good combination of cushioning performance and ease of leg reach to the ground, a multi-function digital instrument panel and more. It was packed full of performance and functions to heighten the joy of riding and operating the machine. The model on display is the 1998 version that was equipped with an aluminum swingarm and the Yamaha Computerized Lubrication System (YCLS) that controlled the amount of lubrication oil used by the engine.
