ON THE HORIZON
The 250 RR sees a new diaphragm clutch that provides a lighter pull while offering a more progressive control , significantly reducing rider fatigue . Both engagement and disengagement have been improved , while the clutch is now capable of transmitting even more torque . Riders can also adjust the clutch settings with three different spring options to suit his / her clutch feel .
The 300 ’ s new engine , combined with a dedicated new engine control unit map , boasts a smoother and more progressive response to throttle input and a more linear power delivery . Despite the significant hike in maximum power , the bike as a whole is also easier to handle , more intuitive , and more forgiving to use than ever before .
All models will see the rear shock has new compression damping settings with independent high and low-speed damping rates providing the rider with the adjustability for both separate settings . The front fork has also received updated internal valving settings to further enhance the plushness . Also new to the fork are the tubes , different in color thanks to the new anodizing process which improves the surface hardness and corrosion resistance of the tubes .
