UK of Sherco 4T


THE Sherco 4T was first launched in 2005 and tested the first production just before the Scottish Six Trial. It actually performed well initially but as the test the model became ever difficult to start.

Scottish year did exactly the same, all into problems. The 4T, which had put into very limited was proving to be a classic example of a that had been released the bugs had been ironed The factory accepted this, was put on indefinite hold and the 4T was entrusted to guru Josep Paxau.

It was not to be put into production again it was well and truly sorted, run consistently and start readily hot or cold.

Fast forward to

Paxau has worked his magic, has tweaked and adjusted and is finally with the finished article. fair to say that nothing has been found wanting, a cumulation of lots of little which, when added made a whole world of

The carb is now a Keihin PWK28 hot-start facility) and the ignition is — with dual that can be operated with a of a handlebar-mounted switch. Inside the there has been more work centred on the single camshaft. T+MX was recently to a brief ride, in Spain, on the first brand-new pre-production 4T to be and we had been promised first on the first bike to be sent to

This turned out to be ear-marked for Jarvis and we got our hands on it just Graham had won the Cleveland National time out.

Over to

This was always going to be To be honest, when the original was running it went very I had no problems with its performance, was just no consistency. This was going to be all about the engine.

So, impressions on kicking the bike life? Second kick and it really sweet. It sounds a proper four-… and it definitely you a buzz when you are riding it. I can why Graham wants to ride it in You discover straight away it is very smooth, very

It has lots of grunt but the power has a soft feel. This is the capacity showing itself. It is but lively.

The two-position switch is a novelty and you can feel the difference between the two — although it might not be what you are expecting. Position two is the option but it is not a super-soft »old setting — it is what I call the natural setting. I say this would be the best for 95 percent of riders.

The number one is for the 5 percent of stars who can get the very out of the motor. Anyone can ride the on the ‘quick’ setting, it’s that you would probably be with the softer option. You do the option of flicking between the two on the move but whether you would be to do so is up to you!

Such is the spread of power first, second, third or are all options for sections. I used gear for most of the time in the stream that we were while Graham employed top riders do like their gears!

The 4T motor nestles sweetly in the chassis and, to me, it handles the same. Malc (Rathmell) me there was a couple of pounds in weight — mainly in the head — but in reality you never know. It feels with excellent front/ balance.

The 4T is very manoeuvrable no noticeable front-end bias.

back to that original I was actually perfectly happy the actual performance of the bike apart from its inconsistency and problems.

But it has to be said, this is a improvement. Starting has been Just give it a strong like a two-…, not a gentle like the Montesa, and it will into life without the

Graham had actually removed the from this one! is now totally consistent and the power is better thanks to the new carb/ package.

Being totally honest, I feel that the bike have universal appeal, the Mont, simply because of its capacity. But for riders who are looking for a four-… with real power in a tight, smart-handling Sherco will sell as as they can crank out.
