I think from now on you will have to look to Europe for our smokers.
The Japs have given up on them.

although the frame setup looks similar to a tm with the higher tank perhaps they will catch the 2 stroke virus,unlikely but forever hopefull

I wonder if they'll go back to dual shocks too eventually.

jeez, tough crowd.

first the 4 strokes are too noisy and we are losing tracks etc

so a manufacturer steps up with a solution, ugly as it may be to try and shut them up and there is still a negative response...

Is that why they put dual exhaust on it? I figured it would've been a marketing/sales gimmick, bet a dual exhaust cost more

It is a marketing gimmick haha(Whoa dude, two pipes!). If they were really concerned with noise there would be a single large silencer, gasp but they would lose that power edge haha. What funny is that its been proven to make more hp on one silencer rather than two. So even if they would run one large one, it would still probably make more power.

I feel its a marketing gimmick and nothing more.  Plus 1/2 of the exotic parts will never make it to the production bike.  Same ol crap different day.
