Re: CBR1k Testing
Yeah, they'll rip alright. I had a few opportunities to ride the YFZ450 this fall, and while I only opted for a spin around the 'camp' (out at the dunes), it felt like a fun bike. They have a second gear problem, though.
I passed on this 450R, as I wasn't planning on mine until end of Jan., and I don't really need it before then anyway. They just called the second guy on the list - they'll get more money out of him anyway.
The TRX sits a tad higher than the YFZ - if I remember right - as the seat feels like it's got a bit more padding. Controls are all in the right place, just like the 250R.
When I get mine, I can report how the stocker goes against my bud's worked 250R.
