All i have to say is thank god that the quad market is growing so fast that we now have 7 450 race quads being produced this year. I love that there is such a diversity of quads to choose from and that really unless you are a pro level rider that each is so close and offers differing packages so you can pretty much choose one to your liking. With dirt bikes you have what....5 choices and they are all pretty much the same thing. I love my Kawi and am very glad that I bought it (it fits my riding style and situations to a t) but I am also glad that every company is going to have to raise the bar at least every 2 years to stay with the compitition. In the future when i buy my next quad it will be as far above this one as this one is above my banshee and that took 22 yrs to reach where realistically the next generation of quads is more than likely within the coming decade.
