The centralization of the masses, a topic that continues to play a major role in development, manifests itself in a remarkably neutral handling. The front-heavy handling characteristic of Yamaha crossers for years gave way to a more balanced set-up in the new MX1 bike. Incidentally, the electric starter works fine. Even after a provoked stall on the track, the single cylinder starts reliably. Questions about the suspension coordination still have to remain open. On the leveled sand runway of the presentation, neither the fork with conventional springs nor the shock absorber (both from Kayaba) were really challenged. One more word about the Enduros: Under the name EnduroGP Replica, both the WR 250 F and the WR 450 F are now offered with Akrapovic silencers, grip protectors and modified decor – and this at no extra charge to the standard version.
