Show #180 – 2020 Sherco 450 SEF-R First Impression
The French manufacturer Sherco is making a push in the American market and in this episode we will go over what it’s like to ride their 450 SEF-R. Sit back, relax and take a virtual ride with Michael Allen and Keefer as they go over this unique machine.
Thank you for testing Sherco…
Have few things to say…
Keefer as moto specialist (90/10) will always be biased.
Enduro bikes are much different than MX, Sherco is made specialy for enduro so always will feel soft and sluggish to MX guy.
Suspension as we all know is WP on R model, same on KTM and Husqvarna and needs revalve straight from shop, as you mention for serious racers Sherco offers factory edition with KYB suspension.
As far as parts, here in Europe i get any part within 24hrs and most parts are cheaper than KTM, can not see why it would be any different with parts in US.
I went for Sherco as did not want TPi KTM, so far i love it. They may not be there with big 4stroke yet, its tough to beat KTM in 4stroke with their 20years experience…but give them a time and I’am sure they will be on top!
