That 1500 quid should be good news to the TE449 riders as well... That'd make me feel much better about purchasing a discontinued bike.

Test ride

Well, I got to have a couple of rides on the 450 yesterday, off-road only, and I was surprised. I am no off-road king but, back-to-back with my WR250R, the 450 did really well.
Its still a pre-production bike and the map is a little rough around the low-end but it went well. The more road-focused rake means its a little vague up front compared to the WR but it does carries its weight really well and the ergos (once I had the enduro seat on) were really good.

Here the vid:

Hi

The seat to peg was WAY better with the higher seat - I couldn't live with the standard seat but I am 6'3" and 33" inseam!

The CCM team seemed very interested in every comment I made and we discussed seat options among many other things.

That is actually a pretty good price. After outfitting my KTM530EXC for touring i have $11,995 into the bike and that does not include shipping for most items. Probably add on another $300 for shipping charges.
Although I do have an arguably better engine, transmission, and suspension but I also have many hours of labor into it too. And...you can usually get the bike for less than MSRP!

I must admit the CCM looks nicer though!

Yup, cringe-worthy. They should lift the phone and get another Brit firm, Kriega, to sort it out.
