2022 450 SHOOTOUT

2022 450 MX Shootout | Big & Tall Test Riders



Earlier this month, we published our 2022 450 MX Shootout that featured a diverse staff of test riders. When setting up a bike during pre-production testing, manufacturers have a target weight range for potential consumers, as it is impossible to produce a bike that will be perfect for everyone. On a 450cc motocross bike, the target weight range that manufacturers aim for is 175 to 185 pounds. We know that many riders who purchase a 450 MX bike are Vets who may tip the scales on the heavier side, so we decided to conduct a mini shootout of sorts to see if the bikes stack up differently for a rider who is on the larger and taller side. Enjoy!

    Really dig these videos. As a big dude watching 150lb kids ride motocross triples doesn’t really mean much to my riding and choices for bikes. So glad your doing these!! Thank you.
