For what it's worth, my Predator made 52 hp at the countershaft when bone stock... but it weighs quite a bit more than the YFZ450 and I would be utterly shocked if the 450R doesn't end up weighing the same as or more than the YFZ.

Heck, for that matter, the DS650 also makes 52 hp from what I've read, but when you put that into a 500+ lb package, what does it matter? :)

I get to watch it via a webcast offered by the honda riders club http://hrca.honda.com on the 10th! Will see it the same time as the dealers.

I'm registered on HRCA too and it looks like the Sept 10th date is a crock. The actual intro is at midnight PDT on Sept 11th. HRCA members can see it starting at 8:30 PM on Sept 10th.

AND... the news on the HRCA website says it's for motorcycles, there's no mention of ATVs. Hmmm.

If you look real close you can see the photo is a fake. It's of the Arctic Cat DVX400, and somebody has carefully written "TRX" on the side. Either that or the 450R is a virtual dead ringer for the DVX.

Where did you get those specs? I watched the video and they gave no real specifics. Honda is also offering a cam/carb kit/spark arrestor hop up, $300 MSRP.
