The WRX pulls through the gears like a MX bike. I don't know why everybody is amped up about top speed. The bike is fast. The bike is powerful. It is geared nearly perfect. Yamaha did there homework and got it right. I see people cringing like there is supposed to be a XT250 hiding inside it somewhere. Fir cripes sakes it is a Yammy version of a KTM or Husky! Does it have to walk on water too?
Hate gets you nowhere.
