Power
Lord have mercy, how can this be legal in a 250 race? This bikes power is CRAZY! It totally rips from low-mid and just smoothens into a good top-end. This bike sold me on four-strokes. I don't see how this is legal. Monstor power. 250's have a hard time even coming close to the power. It would take a 310 kit on a 250 to keep up with this monstor.
Suspension
Awesome.. Jumps like a champ. Doesn't feel heavy. Never had a problem with diving or anything like that. The front and rear seemd to be on par with each other. :)
Brakes
Great, both work like a champ.
Comments
This bike is freakin' crazy. It makes a 250 2stroke feel weak. But, it is 5% rider, and I guess that's what counts. But, I still enjoy racing this bike. It is fun.. But, the problem... It is hard to start. "End of Story."
