We just got the word that Yamaha is sending a display model of the all-new 2009 YFZ450R to Unadilla this weekend. Check it out in the Yamaha pits, as this is one of the first public viewings of the new machine.

We asked Yamaha if they had plans to race the machine this season, and they said "not at this time." Wait until next year? Or will Bill Ballance twist some arms to get on one for Ironman? We'll see.
