This guy has a cool helmet for sure ... We don't know what they are doing to the engine over there, but they have it dialed in for sure to win these type races at that level of competition ...

The motor must be on par with the others or he wouldn't win. There must be something to this new bike.

Yep on the motor and apparently the clutch works for the duration of a race and the new suspension is not a deterrent in this type of racing ...

Here is what the new web site lists as the suspension on a SM449:

SUSPENSION:

FORK: 50mm Marzocchi fork with 9.84 inches of front wheel travel. Upside down fork with advanced axle; compression and rebound adjustment.

SHOCK: Sachs shock features adjustable spring preload, compression, rebound damping adjustments. Shock delivers 11.42 inches of rear wheel travel.

Nice work for Mauno. :smirk: I'm kinda bummed the S1 Supermoto website stopped streaming these races this year. I guess not enough people were watching, they were pretty cool to see.
