Title confusing. Did he forget to mention it or did he mention that it hasn't been mentioned yet?

If "Enduro" is the lower performance unit, does that mean the higher performance unit is "Sprint"?
(I hear doing sprints on your bike is good for the quads)

Agreed, confusing title. In any case, I'm not sure I could surprise the f**n s**t out of people any more than I'm currently able to with acceleration, but I'm willing to try.

1000+ hp quad motor. 0-60 in under 3 sec. Yes please! Do I need it? No. Do I want it? Yes!

So what I took from that Easter egg from the Instagram QA was the really high performance drive unit, but then the durability testing of the quad motor drive unit "in this case we're doing some durability testing on a to be announced drive unit" after stating it was a quad setup on the dyno currently 😉

In house quad set-up?

Would be cool to have an ever higher performance quad motor, but Bosch makes extremely reliable products. Not that I wouldn’t be tempted, but I’m very happy to have Bosch right now.

Quad motor drive + less than 3 second to 60 = all tire tread peeled off.

He/She who buyeth that option has NO RIGHT to BITCH when their tires don't last very long!

This has been known for a while. They are making performance R1T to fight the Raptors and TRX etc.
