Honda recently discontinued the production of their TRX450R racing quad for 2010 since they need to finish selling all the 2009 models. Many are predicting that Honda is working on a all new high performance 450 that will blow away the previous models. I would hope the Honda directly uses a CRF450R engine staight out of their latest dirtbike, then they would have one of the fastest production 450s. I also hope that Honda makes their 450 wider for more stability, improves suspension for a smoother ride, adds a steering stabilizer similar to the ones found on their race dirtbikes to improve handling, and adds fuel injection to give it a qick and crisp throttle response. What do you think the future TRX450R will be like?:confused:

Sounds intersesting. From what Ive read in dirtwheels, dirtrider, etc. honda is looking at producing a 450r with fourwheel drive in or around 2013. Sounds pretty sick to me, probably my next quad

The TRX 450r with 4 wheel drive is still just a concept quad, thats what was pictured in Dirt Wheels, under concept quads. Other great quads featured were: Banshee 500 4 stroke, and the Honda 250 with the CRF250r engine.

For the 700 fans, there was also a 750ex featured in the expose, I would like to see the V twin in there, but the three cyl. 750cc 4 stroke ,105 horse, liquid cooled, fuel injected, turbo charged,11 in. of travel, would be a Raptor killer I think, lets see if that ever gets off the pages of dirt wheels, and into the show room of our local dealers.

Well the 2012 400ex is here all thougth I hope that the would not go to fuel injection due to the fact that in cost more to work on but the crf motor would be nice even no if u put the cam out of a crf 450r same moled year as your trx it dose give it more power

Lots of rumors have been floating around for years on the new TRX450R but today I seen a link to a new frame design including patent rights on it. This is the only rumor or suspicion that I believed so far. Without a doubt it will be fuel injected. The frame blueprints I seen were for a aluminum frame and it was very narrow in the front for a narrow frame/long a-arm design like a KFX. Honda really needs an upgrade and I hope a new one comes out soon!
