What's new for Yamaha ... no new models and alot of refinement. [More]

Polaris has certainly created a rush of discussion with the introduction of it's new 600 based big bump sled.
One of the most interesting features of the new Rush is the "Rider-Active Control" which allows the rider to use weight to affect the sleds handling. The new suspension design and dirtbike rider position play a key part in utilizing the riders weight transfer to play a bigger role in the control of the Rush and this results in a superior riding experience.
