Chewy it would be good to see you back on a 2stroke BUT I canít see any Jap brand doing that in our life time.

Not at all, I think you missed my point completely or I haven't conveyed it properly. Though Tmac450 understood, I was questioning the reviewer and was using the example of Webb as a counter argument example

Ando300 summed it up perfectly

All good Cuffie, I was a little un-sure as why the YZ was used to argue a point about the WR.
Having suitably defended my beloved WR, maybe; I do have some reservations about the new bike, it's too much like the YZ & designed for lighter, riders. I need to upgrade at the end of the year.
It is more compact than my '17; being a taller, mid-80kg rider I have had to mod my existing bike to suit. The '19 is smaller from seat to foot pegs. The suspension change to a leaf spring MSV is new, I quite like the coil spring type. They have also increased the fork oil capacity from about 350cc to nearly 500cc, not sure why such a huge increase. No kick-starter, although this seams the norm now. New clip-in resin speed sensor is unproven; the old one wasn't great, but it was reliable.
Bottom line is that there has been changes which need to be tested; but we know that the changes have been driven by the Australian market, so we should be alright.
