Cool to see another manufacturer bringing support to off road. For those that don't know, to my understanding these are essentially the "pre KTM" Gas Gas bikes.

Not normally one for black dirt bikes, but the Rieju looks pretty good in black:

I just wish they’d explain to us the proper way to pronounce “Rieju.”

The MR 300 Ranger is on my short list... They are the original GasGas to the bone. Dealer says ree-joo when I talk to him.

Love to see them getting involved in competition.

I was fast... But being fast is relative to who else is on the track with you.

I asked an actual Reiju dealer and even he wasn’t sure on the pronunciation.

It is "ReeAju". You guys are fucked considering you can't pronounce the U right, saying "you".

I worked for Sinisalo in 1982. Americans couldn't pronounce Sinisalo either. There was a hot blonde that was the owner's sidekick, and became real popular with some of the riders, if you know what I mean. Sinisalo soon acquired the nickname of "Singleswallow".

Acerbis is another difficult one for Americans.
