UK Importers Malcolm Rathmell Sport are delighted to announce that they are expecting the first batch of 2018 bikes by the end of this month and all being well it should see its debut at the Reeth Three Day Trial which takes place at Grinton, near Reeth from 21st-23rd July.
Sherco have certainly been busy burning the midnight oil with many welcome modifications . Main changes for the 2018 bike are the Tech Forks (first developed in conjunction with the Sherco technical crew) which are in gold aluminium with a new Reiger shock for ultimate rear suspension. The new diaphram clutch developed last year has seen major improvements with many new modifications and a new AJP master cylinder. Two very welcome modifications are to the airbox for ease of access and alterations to the radiator to allow a quick refill.
The 125 ST has also seen a lot of development with a revised primary drive ratio which allows the factory to fit the same front and rear sprockets as the bigger models – 9T on the front and 44T on the rear. All other modificatons are the same as the bigger models:
