I agree, the Pro looks like a clown bike

Let's go back to Yellow Red and Blue to denote CC models like 20 yrs ago!

Finally got rid of that 48tooth.

I'm not a fan of the main color scheme since the beginning of the Rieju offerings except for the green anniversary edition and I am still not a fan for the colors offered for 2024. It took all of my willpower yesterday to not bring up the different color schemes for different displacements! I really liked that 20+ years ago which leads me to this conclusion about the 2024 model year: I'm not the demographic they are targeting. That's okay! The changes being made are more oriented to enduro and cross country racers and that is much smarter than placating old riders like me who use the horn, the handlebar mounted choke lever, and 48T rear sprocket every ride (I need to be street and forest legal for my riding these days). Glad to hear they are getting FMF again for ease of making it forest legal as I had not seen that before my post yesterday. And for those like me with their competition days far in the past, it looks like all of the parts to make these "road legal" in your jurisdiction are still available. I wish Rieju and their dealers well for the 2024 model year!

Being truthfully honest, how confident are you that Rieju will stay in the US? During my short little search here lately I have noticed that the dealers in the states all have 2022 models still. Most that I have looked at in the southeast will only have one or two bikes. Do y?all think the brand will catch on? Not trying to be a Debbie downer, but looking realistically, it?s a tough row to hoe going up against the KTM brands and losing the GASGas name also.

I think they are getting more noticed but it takes time. I know just here in my local riding circle there are two new Rieju's and Tucson is a dead zone for the more exotic and unique bikes. I only know of two Beta's, two Sherco's, and one TM in the area as well so it's showing pretty good here and we don't have a single Rieju dealer in Southern AZ.

I also have no worries about the brand itself considering their history and think they know it will take time to build the brand up here in the US.

My '23 Mr Pro has the choke on the carb even though the master has provisions for the choke lever.

My buddy that wrenches on motorcycles/Quads/Side by Sides ( Moto Farm) has really enjoyed having my Son?s 80th Anniversary in his shop, everyone is drawn to it. He said no one knows what a Rieju is, he explains the history of the story and still, people are intrigued by the bike but don’t know what it is.
I remember the same scenario with Gas Gas BITD.

Not a fan of the color scheme of the 24 pro model or the red seat on the ranger but the racing model looks amazing . I really love my 23 ranger 300.i hope the brand makes it .who cares where the dealer is now a days we order everything online anyway . I drove 31/2 hours to get my bike . It was not a big deal to me . I have a 22 xc250 sitting in my garage as well , and I wish it was a rieju pro 300.
