[sarcastic]Oh dear. Another American embarrassing himself. You do know that your little island is surrounded by oceans, and beyond the horizon the world is not flat. And about 6000 miles to your East is this little island called Great Britain. Several hundred years ago they made up this funny language called English... Aluminium is one of the words that they made up to describe a silver coloured metal, it even made it on to the periodic table, and most every other country in the world adopted the same word, except the Asmericans who bastardised it in to Aluminum.

Oh... and the metric system is pretty funny too. It was designed mostly by those weird Frenchies to make things easy for everyone (except Asmericans). Like the freezing point of water is 0 oC, and the boiling point is 100 oC. 1 Litre of water = 1000mL, 1000cc = 1 Litre. er... 1cc =1mL? Guess what, 1 Litre of water weighs 1Kg and will fill vessel that is 10cm x 10cm x 10cm (1000cc)[/sarcastic]



I like this. Please post more often Nick !

The displacement said 449ml? wth..

And the frame is "aluminium" must be some new type of metal.. /sarcasm


Unless you're in the UK... it's Aluminium across the pond mate!
1ml = 1cc :excuseme:

At least they had a Brit check the Engrish... :smirk:


If you think about it, since elements end in "-ium" us Yanks got it wrong... :ride:

Somebody should send the engineers at husaberg a note, because even that cheap p.o.s. has both kick and electric start. W to the T to the F.

i agree , the new husberg's should have a kick start to back them up . but you can always bomb start one if the battery died .

wouldn't stop me from buying one , only thing that is stopping me is the fact we don't have a dealer , plus they need a bigger fuel tank .

on another note that engine only has 4 valves , definitely not a 450 Yamaha design .

looks like a big rip off of a honda to me .

it would be funny if the valves on this chinese copy of honda's engine lasted more than the valves on honda's own engines.

They probably will. Will probably be the cheaper stainless valves that everyone with a 450X wants anyway.

I think engine durability is why the chinese 450x is down on power. If they tuned it to make as much power as an X or WR it'd last all of 7 hours...if that.

With 18 less HP, that wouldn't be too hard.....
