ON THE ROAD
The engine works really well, you can feel the 75cc more than its younger sister,especially at low and mid-rpm, where it offers a great comfortable push to easily come out of any situation. The vibe is excellent right from the start, mainly as a result of the always fluid and very manageable delivery. The Brembo hydraulic clutch can be easily dosed and is very precise.
The chassis lives up to expectations: the ZF shock absorbers work well even though the standard setting is quite soft and more suitable for amateur use. In any case, compression, return and preload can be regulated to change the response of forks and rear-monoshock ensuring that the bike adapts to our weight and riding style in the best possible way. Nissin brakes are a given and at the top as a product, powerful and modular in all conditions.
Riding it is fun, its lightness and responsiveness do not compromise stability and traction, making it an excellent bike in the woods and ready to tackle mule tracks and hard enduro trails. It gives its best on narrow paths where its cycling qualities combined with the engine good delivery, guarantee quick and intuitive riding. Surely,it’s the right bike for those who want to ride enduro, even of the challenging kind, perfect for amateurs who seek the right compromise between the extreme agility of a125 and a 250hp engine.
Compared to its larger 2-stroke sisters, it’s much more versatile and easier on a physical level, especially for the nature of the engine; but when you flog it still offers a rather good push. Fun even for pro-riders who compete in races; a few limitations related to the categories remain, since it would challenge much more powerful bikes.
