I bought one, it's a ripper.
Here it is this morning.

And here I am this arvo.

Here is what I've noticed so far.
The clutch is lighter than my SDR and fueling is way better. It's a lot smoother at all RPM, especially off the initial throttle. Its very good in traffic.
There is practically no engine braking! You can rev it hard in the first 3 gears, roll off hard and virtually nothing. The SDR had shitloads, like a truck exhaust brake.
It will be great in the bush. Smooth linear on/off throttle response.
The suspension is excellent and handles great. It will be a blast in the twisties.
Snick snick snick, sorry thought I was Weeksy *
6th is a proper overdrive and sits at 3200 RPM @60 mph, but you can crack the throttle and it pulls away smooth, not lumpy at all like the SDR, even with the smaller front sprocket. Wank those SDR's *
And the dash is bloody awesome.


*Both Wazza jokes.

They give you a useless note pad and pen, but no manual, warranty or service book.
This is the manual I printed off, using both sides of the paper!

Ask about the service manual, we didn't get one last year when we bought an EXC. They said nobody wants them anymore, when I asked for it they had a pile of them out the back.

The SC project in black. It's not available for the current bike, it looks to be the same as last years. But the importer recommended to wait until SC confirm it, as it could be a few mm different. It shouldn't be far off.
They all have baffles now. But I only want it to be a bit louder. I quite like how quiet it is now. 😬
Fuck the stock one is big and ugly!

I just rode it home on some rough gravel roads. Standing up like a fuckwit, I hit some decent potholes, and expected a decent whack, but it was super smooth and very stable. It's bloody good.

Lovely bike.
Did you change the crash bars before you went for a muddy wheelie? 😂
