2001 426 vs 2006 450

2 posts in this topic

Lets say you have a bran new 426 and a 450, and do a shoot out. How far have they come in 5 years? How much better is the 2006 compared to the 2001?

So much different, but mainly in the chassis / handling.

The '06 engine is toned down a bit compared to the 426's.

My neighbour has a 426, that thing handles like a pig, doesn't change direction well but is stable at high speed compared to my 450 ('05). This is because of the steering head angle. Auto decomp would have to be the best feature difference if you have to kick your bike.
