DG releases its first complete bike. They missed the mark with this one though. MX 60 wheels were heavy and not racing wheels.  Perhaps they fealt the Super Pro kits were for hardcore racers and they wanted a entry level Thrasher. But this probably hurt DG’s image some.  Can you imagine you first races on a tank like this? Especially for the smaller racers.
