Danny Hart

When you’re defending the World Champs stripes, you have to do it on a bike that catches the eyes.

My mechanic has done a pretty tidy job of this work of art! Thanks at @woodmans_finest… going to blast a few runs on it this afternoon to break her in!

Loic Bruni

Clearly more to come from Bruni but for now check out this monochrome tease. Plus there’s a remote lockout on the TTX for the infamous road pedal. Nice!
