Crazy power. It sounds like a mild mannered machine, but it can roll into a wheelie whenever you want.

Pros: Super smooth suspension….unreal over whoops and fast moving trail riding.  The clutch is a game changer and lightest feel/effort of any motorcycle I have ever ridden.  Brakes are the bomb.com and never heat up or change feel…no stick, no mush…..just consistent smoothness all day! Look is awesome.  Maintenance is pretty easy.  Ergo is great and first time ride feels very comfortable from the get go.

 

Questionables: Low end punch could be stronger….the motor rolls on a bit more than my preference, but I believe a pipe change with bomb, and snap could improve.  All other mods have been made….mapping, gearing etc…….kickstand isn't great.  Hand guards don't protect your levers well.

 

Negs: Seat was hard…had to change….headlight is weak……parts prices are pretty high, but a good relationship with your local dealer can save you 25% typically.

Coming from a DR650 and XR400 This bike is far and away a much better bike. Worth the extra money. The bike is touch tall in the tight stuff for this 5'10'' rider though. This is a fixable issue though. This bike has the grunt to take over anything if you can hold on. Overall I can't complain. I wouldn't mind a lighter bike. Guess thats what they make 2 strokes for.
