Horsepower and rider seating position
By Bett Douglas David(Enthusiast), Apr. 24, 2015
The KFX 450 R is a little discomfortable for tall riders. Since I have a couple of tall friends who are tall most of them complain of the seating comfort.
The horsepower produced : they didn't complain a lot as it fits the price of the KFX 450 R Read Full Review
