PostSubject: High performance 450 shootout   Tue Mar 11, 2008 9:11 pm

By Russ Hollmann

Dirt Wheels has their long-awaited shootout of the major high-performance 450 sport quads in their April 2008 issue. Despite the "and the winner is..." teaser on the cover, I would say the piece is more a "party" involving seven awesome machines than a true shootout! No clear winner is declared, which I agree would be difficult anyway. But this also allows me to give you my own breakdown of the data and as I read and re-read the article, I thought a "visual guide" would help...

First, the seven machines to keep straight:

Can-Am DS 450
Honda TRX 450
Kawasaki KFX 450
KTM 450 XC
Polaris Outlaw 450MXR (straight axle)
Suzuki LT-R450
Yamaha YFZ 450

Key differentiating specs (since most are the same)
EFI - DS450, KFX450, LT-R450
Reverse - KFX450, 450XC, 450MXR

In order of cost

TRX450 ($6850)
YFZ450 ($7100)
450MXR ($7200)
KFX450, LT-R450 ($7400)
DS450 ($7500)
KTM 450XC ($8800)

Drag test
TRX450, YFZ450
450MXR, LTR-450, DS450, 450XC

Top speed
TRX450, YFZ450 (78mph)
DS450 (77mph)
KFX450, LTR450 (74mph)
450XC, 450MXR (73mph)

Trail loop
KTM450, DS450, YFZ450 (34min)
TRX450 (34.25min)
450MXR, LT-R450

450XC, 450MXR
DS450, YFZ450
TRX450, LT-R450

450XC, DS450, LT-R450
