Rider Review
Power
Very smooth! I have never had such a "mellow" motor, yet even though it feels somewhat mellow, its actually as fast as a unplugged wr400! The motor is a longrod design, and this plays in part with the general smootheness as well as the porting. Either way, this is a great motor that makes great power.
Suspension
Also very good. It seems to be a little harsh on small things. This could be tuned as I am only 150lbs and it is most likely set a bit stiffer as the owner (who is around 200) is heavier. The forks are Paoli, and they are very good. The rear shock is a Ohlins, and is also very good. Overall good suspension on this machine.
Brakes
Quite good, plenty of stopping power. The Honda's probably have better brakes, but these are still very good.
Comments
I am really impressed with this bike. It has all kinds of neat features (foward kickstarter, left side drive) that make the bike really stand out. I would say you could take this bike stock and be able to run well in a harescramble or Xc type race. Also has many well known brands of parts (Öhlins). If you have the $7500 to spend, its definently worth it.
