i've got friends who race 520sx's cross-country and four speeds are not a problem only if your a spode.........
I have been on trails where I wished that I had 7 speeds!
Ever try to ride up a hill dodging trees, ruts and rocks......all without trying to run over your buddy on a HONDA? It gets pretty damn tricky!
I think that the 4spd will def benefit the MXer's but be a debtriment to the tight trail riders of the world that like to MX on everyother wkend!
I honestly think the WR stuff will be interchangable with the YZ anyway!
I find it fishy that they even list 1st gear thru (??) 6th gear ratios.
Why would they even mention 6th gear?
I think the WR will have 6 to compete in the same market as the 520mx market!
elctrc start and 6spd on a trail bike........AWESOME!
But I can't wait for a XMAS present. I need a Fathers day present!
Just my $.03
ANYMORE spodes out there?????
