Introducing the New 2006
Sherco Trials Models
 
 
All of the Trials Models have received a complete redesign which is derived from having top riders, especially Albert Cabestany, provide input based on their competitive experience at the highest level of World Competition.
For 2006, Sherco offers the most complete line of trials motorcycles available in the marketplace, being the only manufacturer in the world to offer both 2T and 4T models.
In addition to the new models offered, Sherco will continue to catalog the existing 2.5 and 2.9 models. These models will be offered at a very competitive price and will be the perfect bike for the rider who is just starting to ride Trials.
 
 
 
The 2006 season marks a major milestone in the history of Sherco; the complete trials model line has been totally redesigned. The young but successful company has used all of its experience and technical skill to develop a new model line that will surely bring continued success and prestige to the company that was founded in 1998.

In 2005, the new and revolutionary 3.2 4T was the star of the show, in 2006 Sherco continues to show its commitment to the world of trials by presenting to the world market the most complete line of trials motorcycles available. Sherco continues to show its confidence in the effectiveness and future of the 2T motor because we are convinced that in spite of fashionable or legal impositions, the coexistence of the 2T and 4T motors is overwhelmingly logical. We are convinced that by offering both engine types we will satisfy the needs of our customers and provide a differentiated product to our valuable and discerning clients. Faithful to this philosophy we have continued to evolve both types of engines and the best example of this is the 2006 model line.
We cannot fail to mention how returning to the highest level of world competition at the hands of our world class rider, Albert Cabestany, has affected the evolution of the new design. All of the experience gained in this competition has been assimilated by our Technical Department and incorporated into the new 2006 models. The new model line consists of the following models: 0.5, 0.8, 1.25, 2.5, 2.9 and 3.2 4T.
All of the models except for the kids 0.5 (it does receive the new 2006 graphics design) share a common frame. The 2.0 has been dropped from the catalogue as a unique model, however a kit will be offered that will increase the displacement of the 1.25 for those users who desire greater power.
In order to provide beginning riders with a great starter bike the existing 2.5 and 2.9 models will continue to be offered. These models will remain in the catalogue and will be offered at a very competitive price. This will allow the beginning rider to purchase a Sherco bike that is recognized around the world as a high quality product.
The launch of the new 2006 2T Trials models is scheduled for the middle of October; the new 3.2 4T is scheduled to arrive in the marketplace near the end of 2005.
