Not sure where to put this but this months TBM magazine compares the XT against the Husky TE610.

So as not to fall foul of the copyrite police, I'll summarise briefly without giving too much of the article away:

They slate the XT as a trail machine. It does get noted for being a good engine though.

I think the comparison is a little unfair. Husky's are built around competition inspired machines. I use the Yam as my first offroad bike. I could have gone for a more focused bike but I needed something that would commute, tour 2 up to Wales and be useable on weekends for greenlaning. I think the Yam fits this better than almost any other bike for 4k.

Anyone got any thoughts on this?

I think the problem is the XT is built for so many reasons, trying to please everyone and not suceeding, they want it to be like the KTM for off roading etc but Yamaha also want the bike to tour comfortably which I have tried and tested it and with a few mods it does the job well, unfortunatly you cant please all the people all the time but I totally agree with you what else can you get for 4000.00
