DBSN Test: 2014 enduro bikes

24th 2014 Enduro

By . Jon Pearson by . Gareth Harford

Elementary though the short, muddy through the grounds of Baskerville Hay-on-Wye, was it proved enough of a course to blow the cobwebs out the riding kit and give us a taster of manufacturer Sherco’s 2014 line-up.

We’ll begin at the and tell you where on earth Enduro bikes come Sherco have been trials bikes for a relatively time, since 1998. over a decade ago they HRD and entered the lucrative European bike market and more bought a factory full of to make Enduro. Though HRD had to do with the Enduro machines to the factory invested heavily and their first Enduro bikes which some remember picked up a rep for being not quite good enough and a a bit of build quality, a fact Rhoda Rathmell of UK importers Rathmell Sport admits: “we with the first models they weren’t good to be honest.”

But she’s also quick to out the investment Sherco main Marc Teissier, put in. Just at the when the recession was hitting the fan across the world Teissier was heavily, millions heavy, machinery and manufacturing back in Europe. Gambling on a factor of 30 per more to produce the bikes in Europe (as opposed to the India, or wherever being cheaper) was a Teissier decided was worth to get the quality needed.

So these built bikes are here the man with the money was refreshingly with his cash when were tightening belts. a few key personnel were persuaded to ship from other manufacturers, not least an engine from KTM, here we are a bunch of bikes which good and far more importantly do the

That then is the story Enduro bikes in a nutshell. are they like to ride? add the usual caveat to testing bikes, which is to say it depends how you and where you ride as to which would suit you best.

But so each felt comfortable to on and easy to ride from the which is always a good

The course at Baskerville Hall was and very slick so any great of the power of the Sherco motors have to wait until time we get chance to test Most of the lap was gentle on the throttle and I think we hit top gear once. said the 250 four … was very capable bike, easy to live with and the most controllable of the bunch in conditions.

The line-up of 250 and 300 4T, plus 250 and 300 two … is not huge alongside the likes of KTM of but you’ll struggle not to find a to suit your needs it, so long as you’re an … Arguably a smaller, lighter 125 2T better suit youth or riders (the Sherco is close to 10kg heavier a KTM125 2T for example) but apart that it’s hard to faults.

At the more serious end of the both the 300s felt of cosseting a rusty rider a slippery wood with kid Again a good sign but you to bear in mind they can throw their gloves off quickly the more you open the In this mud they were all too to go bare knuckle and get a bit too handy.

In short there’s more under the hood on a 300, on this slippery going wasn’t needed, but both had a stretch of skills depending on how you rode them. Throw a beach race or hefty climb at them and they’d through where the smaller models would be left for air. Throw a more rider aboard and they’d be the model.

It’s impossible to about build quality but owned Sherco trials which we can tell you were things look just as on the current crop Enduro

Sherco produce a slightly spec ‘R’ for each model and the is the exciting addition to the UK line-up, in March. Exact specification and for the UK is not yet known at time of writing but up-specced exhaust system and front and rear.

It was a short and test session and this is a and sweet test report but we the point gets across; make a damn good bike. Everything worked as it though we can’t say in all honesty the or suspension were pushed to any lengths on this course. not to criticise by the way, just wasn’t set-up for a full-blown session – more of a taster.

a stage win at the 2014 Dakar not to mention Britain’s David now campaigning a Sherco in the SuperEnduro championship, plus many Enduro events in 2014, little doubt their and development is blossoming. This is a demanding to be taken seriously in the of Enduro.
