Within the last few minutes Transworld has posted and then removed the 450 info.
What I remember:

Looks similar but not the same as 125/250
232 lbs
very low tank
4 speed
damn I wish I grabbed that picture

KTM SX type seat/tank setup. Side plates look kind of dated, similar to 96 Honda I think. Not as cool as the Dirt Rider sketch but it has one big plus, it's blue. :)

6 pounds?
wow that is a lot.
hmmm, i wonder if most of that weight was in the exhaust?
my DRD exhaust is noticably lighter than the stock unit.
i wonder if the '03 lines will fit on an '01?
that could save 2oz or so! :)

I remembered a couple of other things.
Lower seat height.
No picture or mention of a minithumper.
