Has anyone seen any mag reviews for the 06?

13 posts in this topic

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.

it is not out yet - no reviews

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
