Suspension and Handling
A fully adjustable Showa rear shock is mounted low and on the centre-line of the machine for optimal mass centralisation. Up front, the fully adjustable 49mm Showa USD fork action is compliant and supple to suit general offroad riding; a combination that provides “factory” race-spec suspension.
Stuck on a closed course, trying to kick-start an engine, is not the best practice when you’re against the clock. If for some reason you stall the engine on a difficult section, this feature is essential to get you back on pace as soon as possible.
The flow-out of gases is more efficient through the twin exhausts, which themselves have been redesigned with gradual radius bends. The twin mufflers are 78mm shorter, saving weight and improving performance.
Better for the Long Run
To save weight and increase the fuel capacity at the same time – particularly useful for the Enduro rider – the tank has been completely redesigned from scratch and manufactured from a tough, lightweight plastic.
