What was the biggest "eye-opener" from the show, in both a general sense and product wise?

What things did you find that you didn't expect to see? Do you see anything that signals any new trend in motorcycling in general, or in motocross specifically?

Any cool, got-to-have things that jumped out at you?

A couple different brands poping up with a electric balance bike setup, which I'm honestly really stoked to see kids get started on andbhopefully push more youth into moto.

Roughly the same weight as the prior model.

They didn't have US pricing confirmed yet...they were saying there would be a slight increase over the VFX-W though. I think solid colors were going to be around $550-560-ish.

I wonder if a hand rear brake would be better than your foot? Better feel and harder to lock up....let it roll some

I have a rekluse rear hand brake on my ktm 300. I only use it when I'm trying to get turned around on a hill I didn't make. I don't want to say it's not useful because for some I'm sure it would be. But for me it's not used often and the one benefit doesn't outweigh the price.

BTO has the new Shoei solid up, listing for $539.99

Didn't realize this was in the MX section too or I would have asked the question here.

On the vid during your segment on the "Meow starter bike" I didn't see anything on who made or distributed them. Have any info on them?

Good bike for my Grandson
