The Contender

The Estenson Yamaha team has spent the last five years investing heavily in both technology and talent (riding and technical) to enable the CP2 motor to challenge the Indian FTR750.

That engine is a street bike/production motor that powers the Ténéré 700, MT-07, XSR700 and latest generation R7.

The Estenson bikes have won seven of the 16 rounds this year, five for Dallas Daniels, two for JD Beach. Even though the Indian has had restrictions put on it (crank weight, intake size, rear wheel weight limit), Jared Mees has won eight races in 2023 on the FTR750. Briar Bauman won the other on his KTM (that was in Sideburn 53). With two rounds to go, a double-header at the Springfield Mile on 2-3 September, Mees leads Daniels by ONE POINT!

For Sideburn 54 we interviewed Tommy Hayden, the team's Director of Racing Operations, to find out a lot more about the bike. So if you want to find out more... ORDER SIDEBURN 54
