Bike just feels lighter (although a little heavier), slimmer, and it just handles better than the KTMs. Power is smoooth but deceiving, it just puts the power to the ground with minimal wheel spin. Brakes might be better as they are not as grabby as the Brembos from the KTM/Husky (Gas Gas uses Braktek). Suspension just might be the best overall suspension overall I've ever had on a bike, it's good and plush in the woods and rocks, and works well on a local motocross track. It feels like suspension that has been done by an after market suspension company.

Yeah, but it is a GasGas in name only. I've ridden the new "GasGas", and even did a vid about my initial impression of it (good bike), but it's still a KTM at heart.
