I'm sure it had quite a bit more power back in its hay day but doesn't compare to the power of modern day bikes. its a little slow on the throttle response but that's cause i haven't cleaned the carb or changed the air filter and all that other stuff since i got it several months ago. i just ride it every now and then. BUT this bike can keep up with the best of them as long as the rpms are about half way up. it's also really fast on a long straight away. i got it up to 65 in really low 6th gear. it'll leave all other dirtbikes in its dust in that department. Great power for trails.
Controls and layout of the bike are basic and sensible. everything is where it should be.
very soft but its age doesn't help the situation. i wouldn't jump anything bigger than a small double with it.
like the front, its also soft. this soft suspension though makes it great for trails.
brakes work fine. front brakes are good enough but the back brakes are very powerful.
Great bike for a beginner and is awesome for trails. its possible to ride tracks with it but don't expect a ton from it. after all, its almost 25 years old. but she ain't wimpy either.
