You did listen to the review??? It did say the chassis is better, regardless of what they changed

Depends which map you use, sounds like the standard map is fine, but yeah mapping is normally the first thing I change, wish they had a wifi tuner though, maybe next year

Also those Geico Honda and Star Yamahas and PC Kawasakis etc are not stock, stock graphs mean zero

Hmmm recently a Zook 250 got a holeshot against the Yams.....a lot of this comes down to the rider not the bike in terms of clearing jumps, rider cornering speed being one of the biggest factors rather than HP/torque

Me too, I suspect the 21 WE mapping will fix the apparent standard models bottom end, if indeed its an issue. The problem is with first riding impressions is that they are just that, they havent had time to find settings etc so full tests are more informative ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2021 Honda CRF 450 First Impressions 9/17/2020 4:28 PM

I really dont think manufacturers look at other brands and go lets build a frame like "insert brand name" , otherwise they would all be exactly the same. If you looked at (for arguments sake) a Kawasaki 2021 frame (minus all bodywork, engine, wheels,etc) ... more »

Depends how you look at it right? Handling is better than before, power is better, suspension although feeling soft (possibly because of less harsher frame) is still good with a few clicks .... no new bike is ever going to be a game changer at the level ... more »
