Thanks for tuning in to the Dirt Bike Magazine 2024 450 MX shootout. Every year this is a very big deal for us, but this year is particularly interesting because we have a real wild card in the mix. The 2024 Kawasaki KX450 is completely new from bottom to top. That’s important because this bike has been our top choice since its last redesign back in 2019. We also have a brand new GasGas MC450F. The Yamaha YZ450F had a significant redesign last year, and so did the Honda CR450R, the Husqvarna FC450 and the KTM 450SX. Even the Suzuki RMZ450 has a twist this year because our test bike is the RM Army Edition. We have a lot of testing to do so let’s get to it.
