Highs: New-for-’07 twin shock skid oozes ditch banger personality. Are you sure those are Fox Floats because they sure work way too good if they are?
Yellow paint is lighter this year. Just kidding – yellow trim looks real good. The sport’s most sophisticated, most powerful, most impressive, most symphonic 4-stroke mill.
Lows: Why bother with the dual shock skid when the single shocker works better than anything in the biz? Is that a windshield or an iced cappuccino lid?
Bottom Line: Somewhat crisper in the jigglers compared to last year’s RTX but slightly more competent on approaches.
The Apex RTX is a quality piece that delivers rocket-like thrust and amazing economy. This one breaks the needle clean off the valu-o-meter with lots of ditch banger wannabe racer sizzle.
