Both are bad a$$ bikes... New or used?? Honda 4t's have been around longer so they are more tried and true..If your going new the 08 honda has a steering stablizer..I ride a red bike so yeah I'm biased but you'll be stoked either way...

not to piss off any kxf owners, but i've heard of so many reliability issues with the kxf on TT. And the dirtbike magazines are usually oblivious to these problems, but it's so bad that Dirt Bike included a little section on it in their last 450 shoot out. they said if you get a kxf, change the piston at 20 hours and the crank at 60. no less.

The Honda pulls longer but the power happens at a lower RPM on the Kawie. I prefer the Hondas handling but the KXF isnt far behind. I also find maintenance like top ends to be easier on Hondas because of the Unicam design. Try to get some seat time then decide. Both have specific things to be careful of during maintenance so snoop on their forums to check out what it is and then take that into consideration.

      Can hang with any of the 450's but is much easier to handle in the tight woods.

      Looking to buy a used Beta 2017 500 RRS from outside California.  Can I plate (Register with CA DMV) the bike in CA?  If so what is the best way?  Don't have the money to put down for a new bike from a Dealer in CA.  Any help or sugguestions would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

      This continues to be my favorite trail/race weapon!! In our Eastern tight woods, power is not King, handling is. And this thing outhandles them all!!!!
