Description

In developing the DS 450, we truly reinvented how a sport quad is built. With the industry's first no-weld all-aluminum frame, hollow rear axle and inverted brake calipers. We then pushed the concept even further with two terrain-specific X models. The tight-woods racing DS 450 X xc and motocross-inspired DS 450 X mx. Both are equipped with industry-leading features and are ready to race right out of the box. You can read on. But eventually, you're just going to have to ride one.

  • Rotax 4-TEC 450, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 4-stroke
  • EFI with 46-mm throttle body, 16-bit CPU with 32-MHz clock speed
  • No weld, ALTEC twin pyramidal aluminum frame
  • R-type forged aluminum double A-arm front suspension
  • KYB HPG aluminum piggyback front shocks with compression, rebound and preload adjustments and 9.5 in. (241 mm) of travel
  • R-type cast-aluminum swingarm rear suspension
  • KYB HPG aluminum piggyback rear shock with compression, rebound and preload adjustments and 10.5 in. (267 mm) of travel
Key Features
  • 45.3-hp Rotax 4-TEC 449cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 4-stroke engine: The DS 450 is equipped with a 449 cc 4-stroke EFI Rotax engine, offers the largest bore (97 mm) and the largest intake valves (38 mm) from the DOHC 4-valve head with 97 x 60.8 mm bore and stroke. The EFI uses the largest throttle body (46 mm), 16-bit CPU with 32-MHz clock speed and an almost straight intake path. With a concept referred to as ''Durchzugskraft'' or flow dynamics optimization, the engine breathes easily and can produce more power. The DS 450 delivers the best power-to-weight ratio.
  • Electric start: Push-button electric start for easy start
  • 5-speed manual transmission: Competition-ready 5-speed manual transmission with foot-shifter and manual clutch lever. Features heavy-duty clutch and 9 friction plates with DirectLink mechanism.
  • Hollow rear axle: The hollow, high-strength steel axle has been shortened by extending the lenght of aluminum hubs. The final design: a shorter axle mated with "spyder" all-aluminum hubs with precision machined splines and longer arms. The rear unsprung weight of the DS 450 is therefore reduced, which also has a significant impact on mass centralization and dry weight.
  • No weld, ALTEC twin pyramidal aluminum frame: A maximum strength, no-weld, all-aluminum frame that uses a twin pyramidal structure. Major components are firmly secured with aluminum fasteners called lock-bolts. The frame is stronger yet much lighter than a traditional ladder frame.
  • R-Type forged aluminum double A-arm front suspension: Longest aluminum upper and lower A-arms for a 46-inch sport ATV, one-piece aluminum knuckle and a short spindle.
  • KYB HPG aluminum piggyback front shocks: Kayaba HPG piggyback shock with compression, rebound & threaded preload adjustments and 9.5-in. (241 mm) of travel. Giving riders the flexibility of tuning the suspension to fit the terrain and riding style.
  • R-Type cast aluminum swingarm rear suspension: Features Chromoly hollow rear axle, extended-reach aluminum wheel hubs, aluminum sprocket, cast-aluminum swingarm, 10.5 in. (267 mm) of travel. For the lowest possible unsprung weight and the most mass centralization.
  • KYB HPG aluminum piggyback rear shock: Kayaba HPG piggyback shock with compression, rebound & threaded preload adjustments and 10.5-in. (267 mm) of travel. Giving the riders the flexibility of tuning the suspension to fit the terrain and riding style.
  • Inverted front brake calipers: Inverted twin-piston front brake calipers offer impressive stopping power because of the larger brake discs (182 mm). By putting the caliper "inside" a peripheral brake disc, the diameter can be increased as close as possible to the inside of the wheel. This set-up allows for larger brake discs and improved stopping power and feel. Plus, the peripheral disc brake leaves room inside to push the lower A-arm ball-joint deep inside the wheel.
