New Can-Am DS 450 compared to other 450s

Dirt Wheels put the Can-AM 450 up against the Kawasaki KFX450 and Yamaha YFZ450 to see how the all new quad and radical design compared to the top overall racing 450 (the YFZ) and another with an all-aluminum frame (the KFX). The conclusion...the Dirt Wheels staff felt it was lightweight, fast and handled well but could use some improvements in low end power and turning.

" Can-Am's aluminum frame design definitely has some significant weight savings over the Kawasaki"

So while the comparison was mostly about the how the Can-Am DS450 stacked up in the 450 class, checkout page 124 in the October issue for more info on the others as well.
