  • Hold the heck on.
    By D.J. Hogan (I am an Owner) on Aug 13, 2013

    I got this atv as an investment to later sell.

    technically i got if for only 2k.

    the guy i got it off of tuned the living crap out of it.

    everything from electric fuel injection to the 600$ exhaust.

    I had ridden atvs before but utility quads not manual racing quads.

    this ...

    I would have no problem stepping up to a quarter mile race with a mustang, charger, civic si, not even a camaro.

    It is soooooooo fast.

    Down my road i could get it over 100 mph in a heartbeat.

    im 15 years old and i seriously will kill myself on this thing if i dont be as careful as i can be hah.

    unfortunately gonna have to sell it to pay for a car.

    overall the thing is just crazy. and its honda so its gonna make it through a nuclear bombing. love the thing to death, haha sucks i have to sell it. I have not once came even close to getting it to as fast as it can go. im sure if i do ill kill myself.

    So for anyone who wants to buy it... dude get it. JUST WEAR YOUR HELMET.

  • First-time ATVer
    By Trouble (I am an Owner) on Aug 10, 2010

    I did a little research before I bought the Honda TRX450R as my first ATV and I am EXTREMELY happy with its performance and looks! I've seen different muffler and jetting kits I could get to give it more power but WHY?? This thing already packs a punch! What I would recommend for others purchasing ...
