HIGH-TECH 4-STROKE RACERS

High Tech 4-Stroke Racers Four-stroke sport ATVs—like Honda’s popular 300EX, Yamaha’s War­ri­or, and Kawasaki’s Mojave—have not changed much in the last ten years. The ’87 Warrior and Mojave are virtually identical to the ’98 models, except for cosmetic and color chang­es, and although Honda engineers beefed up and stroked the en­gine in today’s 300EX, the chassis has re­mained unchanged since its premiere in the ’87 250X. For a decade, sport-minded four-stroke ATVers have been forced to re­ly on good old American…

WHERE IS THE ALL-NEW HONDA TRX450R?!

We can't hide the truth. Our beloved sport ATV market has been taken over by roll cage equipped machines. Do we want to stick our noses up at the UTV market? Of course not! Those machines are a blast to drive, and get more people included in our favorite hobby: off-roading. But, if we are honest, we are very bummed out that the sport ATV market has fallen off the radar of most major manufacturers. In fact, Yamaha is the only remaining major manufacturer that offers a race ready 450 and a trail ready 700R straight axle sport…
