It might not be an R1, but it is a Yamaha - the new Scorpio made its unheralded entry onto Yamaha's website. It is an entry level commuter, 250cc single that will compete with the likes of CBF250 or Hyosung 250. The most interesting thing about it is the price: at only 4,500+orc it is priced at full thousand bucks below its competition! Now, the bike itself might not be the most exciting thing on two wheels, but I always welcome more competition and the price is remarkable. If you were in the market for a cheap runabout, why would you buy a Pagsta or some other Chinese product of dubious quality when you could get a Yamaha (probably also made in China, but at least backed by Yamaha's dealer network)?
