The best off road 2 stroke ever built?
The Good
*Incredible motor
*Intuitive handling
*Suspension shows lots of promise
*Strong reliability; cheap to keep running
The Bad
*Stator output is poor for anyone who is running a fan/lights & riding slower terrain
*Brake Tech brakes are not as high performing as Brembo/Magura
*Flywheel may be too light for some tastes
*Fuel tank pickups in the wrong spot
Overall Review:



Those looking to skip my 20 minutes of rambling, my TL;DR conclusion is as follows...

  1. If you are in need of a new bike (yours is clapped) any TBI bike is well worth the look. The motor really is brilliant. However, there are subtle but important differences between the enduro & XC models that were not present in prior model years (2023 vs 2024; XC-W/TE vs XC/TX)
  2. If you don't need a new bike, but want a new bike, its still worth looking at any TBI bike (again, the motor is awesome), even at full retail, but make sure you buy the right bike for your use case.
    1. Use case = the following: If you are a true XC rider with less focus on hard enduro, the XC bikes rip right out of the crate and will need very little love outside some suspension fiddling.
    2. Alternatively, if you are hard enduro/technical trail purist, I'd wait for the 2024 XC-W (specifically; even over the TE). The reworked swingarm, axle size and shock mounting points mellowed out the chassis. To add, the stator outputs the right amount, suspension is likely one step above the 2023 stuff, it comes with Brembo stufff & the mapping/flywheel weight more in line with what the "hard enduro bros" will like from the motor package. I'm speculating heavily here - but if you watch the review you'll see why I am doing so.
  3. If you currently have a 23 TX and want to make it into a 24 TE/XC-W - I feel a flywheel weight + upgraded battery + stator rewind + aftermarket pads are required to get it in the ballpark. Or just sell it and get what is built for your use case right from Austria.

YMMV - Thx for checking out my stuff everyone!
