Should I just get the 450r

Recommended Posts

- 24yr old 5'10" 200lbs w/o gear. New to dirtbikes. Intermediate on my quad Raptor 700

- looking to buying new

- Offroad, fire trails, desert, dry lake beds

I am considering getting a 450r and just under-riding it, sticking to open trails. Sounds good in theory, mainly to avoid buying bikes stages. Of course there is a bit of doubt which is why this was posted.

May sound illogical to some, but I'm leaning towards MX bikes over the trail due to weight and EFI.

My main question is if I'm over my head thinking I can safely under-ride the 450r as I get experience, and just get a 250r? Very open to suggestions.

Yes 450s are great cuz u can just cruise around then when u need the power its right there with a little twist of the wrist. Not like unprodictable 2smokes:)

Get the 450r. Throw quad off cliff. Come back to TT, be treated as a real person. It's a win-win.

Just messing with you. Especially coming from a 700, you shouldn't have a problem handling the power. I don't think you will be "under-riding" it too much.

Awesome, hoping to buy a leftover 2011. I like the looks of the RMZ450r, seems like they all are comparable.

Predictable big power when I need it, can't wait!
