    Uncorked, corrected ergonomics and suspension done, this one agrsesive little bike.  
    Mapping options makes it very versatile. You can map it to be like a YZF or like a EXC, in about 45 seconds.
    Very, very, stiff frame compliance, so this bike beats you up if you ride it hard.
    The weight is there but it's only a big deal in the big nasty fast  terrain.
    Handles better than previous years, by a mile.  
    Preffered over the KTM stuff for anything but loooong distance or constant rocks ( the stiff frame and weight).... but the power is muuuccch better than the Austrian stuff.
    I lowered the pegs, put on 2.9 gal Acerbis, AG 9ah battery, N2Dirt suspension, taller seat (not shown) and all the other usual stuff. 
    It's a keeper.

    This bike is the best combination of a hyper-compliant ride, smooth and easy handling, and relatively agressive power I have even experienced. 
    The Sachs suspension requires a complete rework to be anything special, but it is now on par with KYB SSS.
    BYOB COMPONENTS added.
