Its spose to be the fastest quad on the market..It has 45HP and does 70+mph..it goes 2 mph slower on the top end then the 660 raptor but will blow it away in a drag..It has a nice price tag on it to..

i here that new yamaha quad doesnt have the beans its cracked up to have. unless u pipe and jet it just like u always have to do to get maximum horse. talked to a guy in iowa who has just picked his up said it handles ok. he wasnt really bragin. he said he is gonna get some axis shocks as he couldnt dial in the new piggy backs. but thats just one guys opinion too. time will tell i guess if it is any good. i like it tho from what i have seen [8D]

Not to pull people from this site, but if you want some good info on the YZF you can read A REVIEW by a guy that knows a thing or two about quads over at ATV Outdoors.

But to be fair you can't measure a quad's performance on a couple drags. There are so many factors that go into a drag that it is nowhere near reliable to measure a machine.

true and it does depend on the driver too....what im saying is that it is faster than the Z400. and yes you cant judge it by just a couple drags but from what i have seen in read it is one of the best if not the best yet.

just because the new yamaha is fast doesnt mean its the best. it all comes down to handling and rider. yeah u have to have good power to win races but it has to handle as well. it hasnt proven itself to me yet. the 250r is still king of the mx track in my opinion

Do you have any proof of that or is this simply another unsubstantiated guess? I have heard many comments on Honda's "mystery" quad with no one able to back up what they say. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see Honda come out with a quad to whip all others, but the timing just doesn't fit. Why release one 04 model so late after the others of the line have already been released?

I will admit when I am mistaken and this is one of those cases. I just got the confirmation that I was waiting for. Honda will release the TRX450R on August 10th. This was sent in the form of a press release to all dealers. Now even though I don't trust a thing atvnews says, HERE is a drawing they have released about the new machine just for kicks.

ya i think its about time that honda got with the program...i meen there 400EX handles good and stuff but now that yamaha came out with a race ready quad the 400EX looks like its met its mach....now if Suzuki would just make a quad to compete! and that new Kawasaki 700 HAHAHA i saw one a couple weeks ago and i was dissipointed....the thing acted more like a utilaty than sport....atleast thats the way appered to handle.
