You can say a lot of good words about 426 but compearing it to 2008 450 is useless. 08 450 is better then 426 everywhere.

i've got a 426 and a 07 450 , 07 is sweet, great suspension ,light, motor seems mild but is fast and deceiving, 426 is a monster , expolosive uncontrollable power, not necesarally a bad thing, makes for a fun ride but also heavy and bulky.
