2014 Sherco News?
« on: June 18, 2013, 04:15:33 AM »
Clay, What time of year does Sherco release news about the 2014s?  Any updates on the 2-strokes?  Are you close to getting your pre-production model of the 2-stroke?

I saw on Dirt Bike Mag that there will be an MX250.  I'm assuming that is a 2014.  What are Sherco's plans?  Just trying out MX or will they field an MX team in Europe?

They are building 2014 300i Race models and XRides in August and the new 2T models in September. No updates on the 2T but they are doing a press launch today in France so there should be a lot of info coming out of that event. I was told I would get the pre-pro model in July. Hope that is still the case.
The 250MX model is a 2014. Not sure what they plan to do on  fielding teams in MX. Sherco seems to shy away from big budget teams and name riders so I doubt they will.
We are supposed to see a new 450 in early 2014 and I can only assume they will have a 450 MX based on that bike too.
I'm pretty excited about the direction they are going. They seem to be rapidly expanding their model line. I rode a 300i at the last national endure and it is really a cool motorcycle.

Cool, thanks for the info. 

I was just searching euro sites and didn't find anything yet, even on the French Sherco forum :(

Here is some info in French and lots of pics.

Interesting that the 2-strokes are 3 kg heavier than the 4-strokes according to the spec sheets.
