I think the position of the headlight is the only ugly thing about it, other than that it's at least origional. I just can't wait for some people to buy them and hear what they have to say.

Re: AHHH!! the trx450 is here, check it out

take a YZ450F and pit it against the CR450F, engine wise HONDA LOOSES
with the suspention the YFZ has, and the suspention Honda has, they should be close in handeling, Yamaha has the edge in the travel dept.
Add the facts up and you have HONDA LOOSES !!! [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: AHHH!! the trx450 is here, check it out

Not too many people winning races on a bone stock machine. So who cares what it has off the show-room floor? People will add +3 A-arms, longer swingarms, wider axles, better shocks like Elkas. They'll also put on better rims/tires, etc. What I think is really important here, is how much Hp this TRX450 motor making? The YZF450 is dis-appointing on the power output. Yes it makes up for some of it on the Hp/Wt ratio. But if peeps can go out and buy the CRF450 motorcycle parts and make it the same engine, WATCH OUT, because 55 Hp will be insane!

Has anyone even ridden a TRX450 yet? If not, NEVER make assumptions.
