  • Yamaha YFZ450: Fun on 4 wheels.

    This looks like a bit of a weapon. I have ridden my mates Kawasaki KFX400 (Suzuki with green plastic and Kwaka stickers) a few times and it is great fun Nothing like the old pig quads were to ride and they are suprisingly fun/easy to ride at any pace.

    If I had plenty of cash I would be in line for one of these things. New YFZ450 has the YZ/WR450F engine and the best power-to-weight ratio of any ATV ever.

    >>Welcome To the New ATV World Order

    >>If you've heard it, you can't forget the awesome sound of the liquid-cooled DOHC five titanium-valved single in the baddest motocrosser ever built - the YZ450F.

    >>We had no choice but to adapt that engine for use in the most serious ATV the planet's ever come up against. We call it the YFZ450, and nobody else builds anything like it.

    >>Not only is the hybrid 439cc DOHC titanium-valved five-speed engine far superior to anything that's come before, at 350 pounds, the YFZ450 is endowed with the highest power-to-weight ratio of any four-stroke ATV ever built.

    >>Yes, it even has electric start, and when you open the 39mm Keihin carburetor all the way and take aim, you'll also appreciate the lowest center of gravity in the class and the latest industry-leading suspension technology.

    >>It all adds up to the lightest, most powerful, best-handling ATV ever produced. It's simple. You'll either be riding a YFZ450 this season or trying to catch up to one.

    The baddest motocrosser ever built - the YZ450F.
