Yfz 450

New to quads etc.
Is YFZ 450 a raptor?

What's the fastest speed it goes?
Looking for one on ebay for off roading.

They are similar to a Raptor. They sit a little bit lower with a little bit wider stance. Their engines are also a little different. They are purpose built for some acceleration and snappyness. I think they top out right at 70mph if I'm not mistaken. Not much slower than a 700. I was always told if you want something just for jumps and motocross, then you were better off with a yfz 450. But it's irrelevant because they both come with a huuuuge aftermarket for everything. So you can build them to do whatever you want.

Top speed is irrelevant to buying a quad. One is more trail friendly. One is more race ready. Both can be built to be fast.

Top speed I'd imagine the raptor would have the 450 beat. Out of the box it will have longer legs. Stock the 450 is more suited for the air where as the raptor is more of a trail machine. But like said above either can be built for certain purposes. My raptor for example loves air time where most would think it doesn't belong....
