A bike worth considering, especially with its short model run. Initially developed for the Japanese domestic market, it was released globally in 1996. It was seen as the sporster version of the already popular TDM 850, itself being a derivation of the highly successful Super Tenere XTZ750 Dakar rally bike. In fact, this is probably the best way to ride a TRX. Think of it as a big chook chaser engine and you won’t be disappointed.
