It looks and sounds like its going to be a very nice 450. It ought to make Honda and Yamaha get off there butts and offer FI since Kawasaki ,suzuki and now can-am will offer it.

All that said I know 450's are a big market share but I cant beleive noone is coming out with something to compete more in a Big Bore class. You got Polaris with the Outlaw Id put in this class but untill more people warm up to IRS on a sport quad Im not sure how big of effect it will have on the market. The DS 650 and KFX 700 are good quads but they take a certain kind of rider to appeal to. There just isnt anything else with mass appeal in this category. Surely thought Honda would give one a try. Need someone to push the class for better models in the future. :confused:

Suzuki has one in the works, probably won't be here till 09 though.

Great find on the 450 site, I knew this was coming but didn't expect it for another couple of months. Thanks!!! :thumbsup:

anyone see pics of this new can am 450 yet ?
Besides the video on the site I don't know of any. People have claimed to have seen it but I haven't seen or heard of any proof. Now that Bomb is starting to release the bike I'm sure we'll have some visuals closer to but before the "full release" time listed on the site.
