Sweet find. I thought it was interesting that the honda 450r has 4 hp more than the yfz450. Obviously, hp isn't everything but an extra four hp is a decent amount of power on a quad.

And since we are here for the 700xx I'll post it.

39.5 kW or 39,500 Watts
39,500 Watts / 746 Watts per HP = 52.95 hp

Some of the things the raptor guys are saying on youtube about the 700xx is making my stomach turn. They really are clueless. If I'm doing this right, I believe the XX has the raptor beat on power to weight ratio.

700xx=9.54:1

700R=11.25:1(roughly)

Outlaw 525=8.67:1(roughly...again)
I have seen that a lot. It is not only raptor guys. I've seen it from every type of brand loyal guy. There is a lot of people that have bashed the 700xx ever since it was announced. It is a new "breed" of quad, so it is bound to have a lot of people questioning it. Many don't like the IRS because they have been driving SRA and don't understand the possibilities that IRS brings to the table. Also, there has been a lot of people that have taken the wet weight of 500+ lbs. and compared it to all the other quad's dry weight, and think that it is a tank. Yes, it is heavier than some, but not as much as it appears. Lastly, many have said that it is butt ugly. I don't have a problem with people having their own opinion with whether or not it looks good, but I'm guessing most of them have only seen pictures and the pictures don't do the quad any type of justice.

Now, the truth is that anyone that I have heard that have actually driven the quad just love it. The quad does have the body roll and is a little more difficult to slide around (until you get used to the IRS), but the benefits of IRS plus getting used to the different riding style makes the handling very good. With some anti roll or sway bar the IRS should be much better than SRA, and I know a few have already confirmed the huge improvement.

Finally, this is a trail quad. It is amazing for what it is made for. It may not fit someone's riding style as well as another quad, but I know 700xx owner's love it.

I guess after all that mumble jumble above, what I'm trying to say is that the people hating on the 700xx probably have not even seen one in real life and very likely have not ever ridden one. We know it is a great quad and I'm not going to say that either the raptor or the 700xx is better, but I chose the 700xx over the raptor and couldn't be happier.
