Hey... i have been looking... and i can find specs, pictures and people claiming to own the new 06 bikes. But no ride reviews. Does anyone have a link to one possibly??? I'm getting a new 06's something... and for the trail it needs a 5 gear... So only one other choice... Thankyou

It sounds like you've found more than most. I don't know how anyone can own one yet unless they have some sort of connections. There aren't any mag reviews yet.

Magazine's get the luxury of testing bikes well before they're released to the public.

Expect a test of the '06 YZ450F in the November or December issues.

That is when the bikes are supposed to be out.

I bought my 03' a month before it came out in the mags, so I would guess they were riding it a couple weeks before me.

You don't usually see new bike reviews until the September issue or so. It also depends on when the bikes are released. For example, the CR 2 smoke reviews were delayed until Nov. or Dec. if memory serves and the RMZ450 reviews didn't hit the mags until April of '05.

why do you need a magazine review? How many times did you go off their misinformation or sales techniques in deciding what bike to buy?

06 YZ450,,,,,legendary Yamaha reliability, strong motor, 5 speed for better versatility, lower center of gravity, new SS forks, adjustable clamp with ProTapers.....what else do you need to know? :D

Well first off i didn't say i needed to know... and secondly i just wanted to know if there were any articles out there that might help give advice from an actual rider, and not some sales pitch. I live up in B.C. and problably won't see any of these bikes till next spring at the earliest. Guess i was a little eager, i just wanted to ask some of the more dedicated and computer savy people on here if they knew of any...

Sometimes mag reviews are right. I mean in the 01 shoot out they were spot on! I rode them all, they said the 01 cr 125 sucked ass, guess what it sucked!! all though they said 01 125 had not much low end, but mine ripped! I like mag reviews though, gives you an idea and some bathroom reading :D
