HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEWEST ISSUE OF MXA? IT IS JAM-PACKED FULL OF MOTOCROSS, MOTOCROSS AND MORE MOTOCROSS
HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW MXA? A MOTOCROSS MAGAZINE FOR GUYS WHO LOVE BIKES
The October 2021 issue of MXA is jam-pack full of stuff you need to know, including full tests of the 2022 KTM 250SXF and 2022 Husqvarna FC350. Plus a bonus test of the 2022 Sunday Motors S147 flat tracker. If you care about motocross history we have an in-depth interview with 1979 500 World Champion Graham Noyce, a close-up look at all of the cool TM motocross bikes through history and this month’s “Classic Iron” is the 1971 Van Tech Harley Baja 100. There is also a breakdown of all the changes to the 2022 Yamaha YZ125 —the first new YZ125 in 16 years! And much more moto stuff that you can’t learn anywhere else.
We were not surprised that the Italian boutique brand TM had been in business since 1977, but we were shocked that there was a man in SoCal who had one of every significant TM motocross bike over the last 45 years. We show you all of them.
The MXA gang spent a day at FMF with Donnie Emler, Jr. talking about the aftermarket business in the age of Covid 19. He explains why exhaust pipes have been in short supply, how hard it is to find people who want to work and what the future holds for the sport.
If you are looking for one do-it-all motocross bikes that is worth the money, look no further than the creative 2022 Husqvarna FC350. It is, in our opinion, the “Best Bike On The Planet.” Ride one and you’ll agree.
The MXA wrecking crew spends every waking hour working on motorcycles, we spend every weekend racing them, we go through a lot of parts, we burn up a ton of tires and break things—often by cartwheeling down the track. We live with 20 brand-new 2022 motocross bikes. And, we think that we can be trusted to answer your questions.
The Sunday Motors S147 could be considered a serious training bike for an up-and-coming dirt track racer, but at MXA we loved its quirky looks, peppy little engine and all the fun we had playing on it.
Back in 1971, as motocross was exploding, there were companies who built frame kits that allowed riders to take the engines out of their roached Yamaha, Hodaka, Suzuki, Bridgestone, Honda and Harley-Davidson Baja 100s and put them in a totally new chassis. For $795 dollars you got a complete frame kit–all you had to do with swap over your old bike’s forks, shocks and wheels.
With the next generation of KTM 250SXFs scheduled to come out in 2023, we set out to test the bike that had defined the blueprint of successful 250cc four-stroke motocross bike for the last six years.
Jeff Emig is more than a color commentator. He was the 1992 AMA 125 National Champion, 1996-97 AMA 250 National Champion, 1997 AMA Supercross Champion and also a three-time member of Team USA at the MXDN. This photo is Jeff at the 1993 Motocross des Nations in Schwanenstadt, Austria.
“Hit Parade” highlights aftermarket products you might need, while “Forgotten Tech” spotlights the innovations of past generations—like a four-cylinder CZ MotoGP road racer.
“Ten Things” explains the technical details on unique subjects every month. This month we focus on Arai’s R75 philosophy. Plus, in “Twisted Logic” Jamie Ellis’ explains his process for troubleshooting his way to performance perfection.
MXA’s “Dream Jobs” chronicles how three industry insiders got their jobs in the motorcycle business. We offer it as a guide to how you might follow in their footsteps. “Gear Guide” shows you the latest in racing fashion. This month it is Alpinestars Limited Edition AMS Techstar gear.
Product tests are the bread and butter of the MXA wrecking crew. We test three different products every month. This month it was the Boysen SuperCooler Water Pump, Kreft Plush Tank and Fly Kinetic Mesh gear. “Great Moments” goes back in time to show you what the motocross world looked like 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 years ago.
