Amazing bike!
The Good
Best engine in the class. Pulls hard and long. Suspension is amazing.
The Bad
Lots of intake noise. Airbox takes some extra care to make sure dirt doesn't get in the intake during filter changes.
Overall Review:

This is the best all around 450 for 2024.  Solid, strong motor, great suspension.  New chassis is much narrower and easier to ride.
