    I'm a 165# ex-A class racer who has refused to update from the '08 model Honda. I finally bit the bullet when I came across a great deal on a new old stock 2015 model.This would probably be a great woods bike, unfortunately it is a motocross bike. I was hoping for a big chassis improvement over my '08 (which is heavily modded for me). I was not expecting much out of the engine based on reviews. The engine is OK (I have Yoshi exhaust and Vortex ECU). It is no where near the power of my modded '08, but it is a 450, and engines are easy to improve. The chassis is nimble ...... to the point of being nervous ..... ALWAYS. Suspension and stabilizer have been reworked by Factory Connection. I swapped the Geomax tires for Perelli, which was an improvement. While the thing will turn great, it never feels settled. The centralized mass hype I figure is a double edge sword - flickable and nimble go hand and hand with nervous and unsettled. While the '08 will not turn as tight as the '15, the '08 always feels planted. I think there is some great potential in this bike, but I'm still trying to find the magic combo.
