When you have the likes of James Holland, (44 teeth) saying the 3gen is "way more stable" and Teagg Hobbs main crew chief (dad) saying pretty much the same you have to wonder how much the 3gens steel frame and swingarm plays a role.

Kinda depends what you prefer. From a racing perspective the steel frame is more rigid than the Gen 2 aluminum jobbie which offers more flex. The first time I rode a Gen 3 at the track I was blown away by the stability of it into fast corners. I knew I wanted one. To be fair there are some variables there in set up between those two bikes with different suspension components etc. No regrets making the switch.
