Just bought this for $6k out the door.  Before this my ride was a 2007 YZ450F.  Once I broke in the 2012 it was time to do some direct comparisons between the two.  I ride only Moto-x in the plus 40 class maybe 2-3 times a year.  When I raced a lot in my earlier 30's I was top 2 in C class and top 12 in B Class.  So the 2012 I'm 2 seconds a lap quicker than the 07.  Why, I think its the low end of the machine.  Although if you asked me before I bought the 12 I would have said I don't care about low end because I like to scream the engine like a 2T.  A close second reason is boy can the 12 turn...  So much better than the 07.  Night and day period.  End of story.  Now I will say that in 85% of the corners the bike feels fine but just like the magazines say, some corners (and I haven't ridden it enough to figure out which yet), the bike just feels weird.  I wish I could describe it better but all I can say it's vague feeling that seems to lead to extreme push.  But to some it up best, would I recommend anyone moving from a pre 2010 YZ to a 2011-2013.. Hell Yes.  You won't be disappointed.
