The May issue of Dirt Bike Mag rated the 450's in this order. 1st - KTM 450 EXC, 2nd - Yamaha WR450F, 3rd - Honda CRF450X, 4th - Husky TE450. Quite surprising since Dirt Bike seems to have been leaning toward the Honda's for the past few months. Speaking of the Yamaha, they said "With a little less weight and a little more tang it would have been the unanimous favorite". They also rated the Yamaha with the most HP @ 44.92.
