I just bought my new GREEN kawi yesterday and I can honestly say that i am very impressed with it. I used to own and race an 04 yfz450 with over 4 grand in mods in it and the KFX450 has more low end power and acceleration than my yfz. I can lift the front end off the ground in every gear except 5th. how do u like that for torque? I have yet to actually race my yfz450 against it....because I SOLD IT! but im sure i could beat a yfz. Im taking off the head lights and black fenders soon to race so well see how that looks in a while.
