I'm not worried about the weight, just excited about that super planted platform. I think it's great it's more YZish, if you want a huge tank and a 6th gear then you should be looking at a WR.
What HP numbers is the YZF putting out? I guess it's safe to say that the FX will be down 2 or 3.
I can't find any ride reports...no one in the industry has ridden one?
The FX is a WR with all the EPA restrictions removed, lighting removed, and more agressive ECU and suspension tuning.
A YZ has a slightly different frame (flex characteristics, not geometry), thicker motor mounts, crank, ex cam, ecu, ignition rotor, stator, and wiring harness, hubs, rims, exhaust tune, etc.
The FX is not like a KTM SXF > XCF.
The FX is not a Wide ratio YZ.
It's a stripped down WR with more agressive tuning.
...and the WR is 5 speed.
I still think it's the way to go, but it is not green sticker.
