View Full Version : Kawai 700, and the Yami 450

Anyone hear anything about this new fabbed 450 powered Yamah quad they are supposed to release info on soon??? It sounds enticing, hope she has reverse, and 5 speeds at least. Oh, and let's also hope it's priced decently.

Did anyone see the Kawai 700 in Dirt Wheels?? It looks pretty stupid, but it should be fast, and the same price as the 660R. I hate articles in Dirt Wheels like that though, all hearsay, no concrete facts, or so they seem.

Yeah, I heard about yamaha's 450 a while ago. I think the engine is going to be based on their yz426f bike. The kawisucky is also very ugly and too big. Although, this gives the other manufacturers a run to claim the top engine size spot. Come on honda :!:

if you talk about the kodiak 450 (421cc) if i remember well, the engine is based on the old 400 and it also had an ultramatic tranny.

you'll see also that it only got a 20cc more that the old 400.
