Yes, I believe it won the Paris Dakar in the small bore class and I've seen videos of European hare scrambles where they had to run up this stream with lots of rocks, moss, slime and the thing did noticeably well or better compared to the other bikes.
It's a hydraulic drive and if I understand correctly the pump is driven off of the counter shaft so the faster the motor spins the more power is delivered to the front wheel.
I think the Christini systems are superior in design and function.. I don't know if they have one a Yamaha yet:confused:
