Sherco has just revealed its 2022 line of off-road motorcycles. The French company will again feature two-strokes and four-strokes in several displacements.
Internationally, Sherco divides its products into two different lines: the Racing models and the premium-level Factory models. For the U.S. market, only the Factory models will be offered. This are mostly distinguished by closed-cartridge KYB suspension and premium exhaust systems–FMF on the two-strokes and Akrapovic on the four-strokes.
The 500 and 450 motors have received a number of updates for 2022.
The bottom end of the motor has been reinforced with a new crankshaft and larger bearings.
The gearbox output shaft has received a new larger bearing. The distribution gear has been lightened.
The water jacket in the cylinder block has been increased in capacity to provide better cooling in the most extreme conditions.
The exhaust system and the ignition mapping have been revised.
The chassis for all the new Shercos have a number of changes including:
NEW 2022 GRAPHICS
