What's with all the hype about it yet? I don't understand it all. People looking at the bike side of the motor? If that's the case, what happened in 01 with all the "bike side" of the Raptor? Sorry, I mean if it is all that, great, but if the hype is just hype, then.................

Its almost always this way with new products and such.. There will always be speculation and curiosity running amuck.

I'm extremely curious myself. My buddy was going to sell his Raptor to get a Predator. Now he is going to sit on his cash and see what this bike is all about. I might think about one myself, but after the Raptor, I'm actually a little scared of Yamaha's new quads.

hey nOOb, thanks for the link to the video. It looks good, but I wish that they would do a video like that for the Predator. I didn't think the Yami was all that impressive.

I hate the sound of it! The quad is as annoying as the guy from ATV Television!

My buddy is trading in his Rappy also.We have a few locals that out money down on one..Im waiting to see what Honda puts out first......then Ill decicde on what my honda gets traded for.ITs going to need a rebuild nexy year from alll the hours Ive put on it, so if worse comes to worse and they both are a flop, then I guess its time for a 440kit for me....:) I am very curious to see it in live action my self.. NOOB~~~ Thanks for posting the Vid!!

All the video proves is that the yammy goes around a track by itself. Don't get me wrong, I think it's going to rip but, where was it's competition. Any one of the newer four strokes could look like that on the track. I wanna see it go head to head against another quad! Can't wait to see how it compares against a pred!

Rode the new yamaha today, I didn't get a chance to really open it up, I was just in a little area behind a dealer, you can definetly tell the difference in the weight. It was not very comfortable for me, I'm 6'2", so I felt rather cramped on it, for me the handlebars are too close to you and too low and the footpegs need to be a couple inches lower. The seat is very similar to the predator seat, HARD! The motor seems very responsive and revs quickly, can't wait to see one in the dunes where there is room to open it up.

Yeah about everyone liking the new 450 before it was ridin was wack. Everyone was dissin the pred before it was out and it blew away the competition lets see what the new 450 has in store when it is matched up against the pred!
