HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW MXA? YOU SHOULD BECAUSE IT’S JAM-PACKED
The April 2016 issue of MXA features MXA’s project 2016 Kawasaki KX250F, outfitted in white plastic, and featuring 20 KX250F tips. Meanwhile, on the lower portion of the cover, is an exotic 2016 TM 1440MX.
How rare are 2016 TM 144MXs? Well, they are available at TM dealers, but if you got your hands on one it is unlikely that more than 19 other racers would know what it felt like. Exotic, rare and unusual—that’s the epitome of cool.
The Tech 1 is Alpinestars’ least expensive motocross boot. Would you be surprised to find out that it is also a very good boot—and anyone who saw you wearing it would think it cost $550.00 instead of $199.95.
When we look for project bikes to test, we look for tuners and builders that specialize in that brand or model. No one knows more about Husqvarnsa (Swedish, Italian or Austrian) than Dick Wilk from Dicks Racing. Read this story to find out what he knows.
After Davi Millsaps left Team Kawasaki he bought a Suzuki RM-Z450 to prepare for an assault on the AMA 450 Nationals. He never showed up on the yellow bike, but we tracked Davi’s RM-Z down and put it to the test.
Carter Dubach is the son of former Supercross winner Doug Dubach, who was Yamaha’s official test rider for years. So, we brought young Master Dubach in to test the 2016 Yamaha YZ85. The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.
CCM stands for Clews Competition Machines. Built on the ashes of the factory BSA racing department, Alan Clews kept the four-stroke world enthralled while it waited for the Yamaha YZ400F 22 years later.
Shot Racegear is new to the USA, but we think they are on to something. Not only are they offering super affordable race gear, but when we complained about something on the gear we were testing—they stopped the production line and made a running change to the pants. That’s impressive.
HOW TO SUBSCRIBE TO MXA AND MAKE MONEY
If you had subscribed to MXA, the March 2016 issue would have been placed in your mailbox by the reliable hands of a uniformed agent of the U.S. Government. And you should want to subscribe so you could read all the details of the the TM450FI-MX, Yamaha YZ125, Husky FC350, Yamaha YZ450FX offroad bike and find out how much money we spent making a 10-year-old RM125 two-stroke new. Or, you can wait for these tests to appear on the internet…in a couple months. Your choice.
Do you subscribe to MXA? You should. We know that you think that print magazines are dead and that the internet will fill the void, but most of the stuff in the current issue of MXA won’t appear on the web for several months, if at all. Luckily, you can get all of MXA on your iPhone, iPad, Kindle or Android by going to the Apple Store, Amazon or Google play, but better yet get the Digital desktop version at https://hi-torque.com/product/motocross-action-digital-edition/ for $9.99 a year.
The MXA test riders prefer the print version and not just because it is delivered by a uniformed employee of the U.S. Government, but because for only $19.99 you get 12 issues and a free $25 Gift Card from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. That means that there is a profit to be made in this deal for you. For the Print magazine go to: http://hi-torque.com/product/subscribe-to-motocross-action-magazine/
