    New Chinese 450cc

    The Chinese look like they are now trying to step up into the 450cc dirt bike market with bikes like this MCF450-R. They claim it has about 46HP and it has a price tag of a little over $6000. I still dont understand why they cant put a decent set of tyres on their bikes.

    Whats your thoughts on it?

    If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

    Wow... It looks pretty good to me, i like the airbox. i haven't owned a brand new 450 in ages but i suppose they are all pretty similar now. I guess the 46hp thing will be a bit like the 18hp 160cc... but i'm sure it will still be good value for money none the less. Although at 6000 i know i wouldn't buy one, you can get 4 MSO's for that price :P

    they look alright but i dont think i'd shell out for one, think id rather spend the cash on a 2nd hand jap bike, or at least untill they've been out for awhile and have proven themselves

    Yeah they LOOK ok .... but our little chinese friends are great at polishing turds and pumping out cheap copies .... so not convinced ...like the boys are sayin you can get a pretty new honda for that sort of
    coin.If all ya get is a new piece of sh@t then as soon as ya kick it over it's gunna be a second hand piece of sh@t.I'd rather a second hand honda

    Looks very interesting indeed.

    I would like to see how it held up on the trails for a day. That would be the real test.
