I do remember the tests from back in the day.

Manufacturers do get it wrong from time to time. Probably when the design engineers get carried away with their own greatness whilst forgetting what the customer actually wants.

However, most brands have suffered the odd lemon now and again.

Was it the 1982 RM250 that had the super short forks and had major handling issues ?

Honda's 1981 CR450..............

Cheers,
