How much more Power?

4 posts in this topic

The '06 250F has roughly 35 hp. An '03 YZ450 has around 48.5, and the '06 has 50. Did you ask the question you meant to ask?

Hi i was wondering how much more power the 06 yz250f has than the 450. I'm 6'0

182pounds. Do you think i could handle a 450? :thumbsup:

I think you meant 'how much more power [does the 450 have over the 250]?

It is a pretty significant difference (as grayracer has shown). Can you handle it? It all depends on your riding style and experience. The way I look at it, the bike only goes as fast as you roll the throttle :confused: . If you have any control over yourself, you start slow, get the feel, and eventually you'll grow into it. I jumped from a 125 smoker to a 426f and had no problems, but I'm not a major racer or anything. :thumbsup:

Just be careful (like we all should be with everything) and you should be fine.

yep play it safe ask yourself do you need the power? will you use the power? The 250 rocks for the track. I like my 450 I am used to running powerfull bike and have learnt to respect them and my arms are about 2" longer after only one ride...easier to reach stuff :thumbsup:
