The new Griz has been announced.
Looks to me like they made some nice changes. Lower CG, battery up front will help get some more weight up there, higher air box, new suspension and brake system, power steering, new shifter gate, larger brighter headlites (not like need them though!) Not to mention the engine. One article I read said they changed the gearing giving it more low and mid range and also changed reverse. I say great job Yamaha!
