...and the "708 is not Yamaha, 708 was dropped because it was garbage" bull crap continues.
I'm betting the "new" 686 is the same motor. Otherwise why is it not a 690, 699, 701, 737, etc.?
And the 686 continues in production while the 708 does not for one very corporate reason: $$$
Money relating to refining the bigger engine for stricter emissions standards, money relating to production costs, money relating to materials cost, and any or all of the these reasons.
It's a Grizzly "700" and it either suits you, or a competitive brand does. Not like 22CCs is making it more or less competitive with it's competition. In reality it really doesn't have any "700" competition, so Yamaha is going to do what they want.
