Thanks Dave! It was nice to read a test in another country about my favourite bike. Here every bike magazine was complaining about poor horsepower delivery! Can't really get it since the only opponent of this bike was KDX200 with about same horsepower but less torque and not as good maneuverability and poor suspension performance (compared to the WR). In a way it makes sense since back then 200cc competed with 125 hysterical motocross bikes turned to enduros! But 200 is a class on its own if you ask me. And some mods with bolt on parts and there you go. You have a powerful bike that tires you less than a 125 and is better on fuel consumption as well (very important for long rides-races).
Cheers, Fanis
