"Improving rider comfort and ride quality informed many of the changes. The engine was moved forward in the chassis, giving the rider three additional inches of space in the footwell. A narrower design also puts a rider’s feet two inches closer together than on previous models. The chassis was stretched out two inches to achieve a 52-inch wheelbase and the geometry on the front and rear A-arm suspension set-ups has been changed, giving 10-inches of travel at all four corners. All six models come with rear sway bars as well. Changes to the steering head angle, which has been moved rearward by five degrees, is claimed to make cornering easier. The XT and Limited models are even lighter at the handlebars thanks to electronic power steering." — 4wheeldirt.com
