Bike has a trials 290 two stroke engine with trials gearing, 1st, 2nd and 3rd low gears 4th and 5th high gearing. Bit hard to kick as has lots of compression but wont kick back like 4 strokes. Can't fault the bike best thing since sliced bread soo so much fun. Alot more enduro orientated than my wifes XY Sherco but way more of a trials bike than the freeride. um what else did I mention how much fun it is?

thread bump:

Apparently Sherco/Scorpa have only brought in less than 10 of these to Oz.

Burnsie and I have each put in an order for a Scorpa T-ride 280 (Sherco X-ride 290 with orange stickers).
Should arrive early June.
Not sure yet whether i will keep the CRF250x

Sherco X Ride

Finally picked these up on the weekend and they are exactly what I was expecting:
Light
Tractable
Fun
Simple
Turns on a dime

Only 86kg with 1/4 tank so probably 90kg full

Took these out for a proper shakedown at cobaw today

Certainly a lot slower on open tracks where the suspension is just not up to high speed hits, but that's pretty obvious.

Gearing is very low. 1st and second are mostly unusable. Hill climbs were best in 3rd or 4th. Only on the most technical sections did I drop back to second.

4th is a very usable gear for flowing single track 3rd for when it gets tight.
When it starts to open up 5th is too high. I think a smaller sprocket will be worth trying

In theory it has the same ground clearance as my 250x ~320mm but perhaps the softer suspension means it rides a bit lower as I dragged on the skid plate quite often. The pegs sit quite low relative to the frame and these dragged in ruts as well.

Even the standard trials tyres on both ends were decent. Will keep them for a while before thinking bout going for hybrid or mx tyres. A cheater front might be good for some extra ground clearance

Weighed it again with some electronic hanging scales.
96kg with a full 7L tank.

My 250x was 119kg with maybe an extra 1L of fuel

No crashes today which is unusual for me! This thing just changes lines up technical climbs on a whim and has great traction. I found I could more easily stay standing where on the Honda I would have put a foot down and started paddling up the rest of the way. Low height and weight meant no drops either.

Heavy flywheel makes it very difficult to stall and it started first kick when needed. Pivot turns are a breeze!

Overall very happy with it. There are a few things the Honda does better but I don't think they are enough to warrant keeping both
