According to KTM President that’s not the case at all. They have already hired more people and working double shifts to get bikes out. https://www.cyclenews.com/2020/06/article/ktm-president-ceo-stefan-pierer-interview-part-1-2/

He has a very different definition of “boulders” 😂

I don’t understand why anyone would race any kind of professional race without a mousse. I know they have a different feel and most guys don’t for SX, but flats are just too costly
Added reply in a thread Fitness people – is altitude like heat? 6/5/2020 10:20 AM

Like everything else it affects everyone differently. We’ve gone up to race in the Salt Lake area dozens of times (pro Endurocross) and it doesn’t effect my son at all. He keeps saying “what are they talking about with elevation”. In reality 4,000ish ... more »

Added reply in a thread Gave up riding to watch supercross.... 5/31/2020 9:33 PM

Nope, rode all day, stayed off social media and watched it when we got home. I always go with the theory it’s better to be a participant than a spectator, so never don’t do something to watch others.

While they do make some silly mistakes that you have to laugh at, at least they ride, race and spend time on the test bikes before giving an opinion. Unlike some other media around here who spend almost no time on test bike before trashing it.

The X-Trainer is a great bike for what it is. It’s compression is like a KLX 300 or a CRF 250f only it’s way lighter and has better components. Beta markets it as a entry level bike, although many guys try to use it for Hard Enduro type stuff. My Uncle ... more »

I have no problem with them not liking a bike, but they at least have to put a little time on it. 5 test riders and a dyno run and they put just a little over an hour on it! That’s not good testing by an stretch.

Added reply in a thread Looks like Beta is about to Release a/an MX Model/s 5/9/2020 9:37 PM

Not to talk about a TM in a Beta thread, but I saw that bike at TM USA and talked to them about it. They put less than 1.5 hours on it and that included dyno time. So 5 test riders rode it for only a few minutes? No wonder it felt strange to them! At ... more »

I’ve often wondered if Beta has tried to pick him up. However after reading through and hearing a bunch of his comments he has made about the Sherco team I don’t think Beta would want that on their team. Plus I would be surprised if he would want to ... more »

Grant has posted he’s staying with the team.

Which is probably why he isn’t a factory rider.

When my son raced the SuperEnduro’s over in Europe one of the first messages I got from him after he saw Billy Bolt in person was “he’s the best rider I’ve ever seen on a motorcycle”. What also makes Bolt cool is the fact that he has all those technical ... more »

Just read the Sherco forum. Pretty interesting. Ryan Young has been the trials importer since the beginning and just took over the Enduro line too. Known them for years and have been a dealer for them. Great people and very customer service oriented!! ... more »

Ryan Young is the importer of Sherco Motorcycles, so essentially the same thing.

Added reply in a thread Beta Motorcycles Shipped to your front door, is this the future? 4/24/2020 8:33 AM

Just to clarify, the bikes are still being sold through a dealer. There is no cutting a dealer out and there is no savings because of this. Also the bikes aren’t just shipped out in the crates they come from Italy in. Beta USA is fully assembling the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Are 21' SX and TC models going FI? 4/10/2020 9:03 PM

No better than a carb model, maybe not as well. My son races a TM 300 in pro Endurocross. TM has the same FI system as KTM. They sell both a carb and FI version. He still prefers the carb bike, it just revs a little quicker and revs out further. The ... more »

Added reply in a thread The Baylor Brothers Join Sherco for 2020 3/10/2020 11:46 AM

Knowing something about off-road racing and pro riders I’ll say this. They put stresses on bikes that normal people don’t. Things break and wear for them in race conditions that no one can think of. Sherco is a new bike for any rider at that level to ... more »
