The bike is bad ass. Im 37 Ive had many bikes. Its unreal. No problems, turns on a dime, but the motor is unbelieveable. Any doubters need to ride one and be able to buy one. They wouldnt say bad stuff then.:thumbsup:

I thought the motor was pretty weak really

No offense, but because your test ride was just in a yard, not on a trail / track or in a race, your impression of power could not have been accurate.

In just a straight-line pull, any bike that rev's fast and high, will always "feel" more powerful, even if it isn't. It's when you are pulling hard out of a deep rut or through a rhythm section at part throttle that gives you a true impression of hook up power. And that's where the RMZ shines.

Live with it for a few laps and then you'll know.
