Race-Ready sport ATV
Push-button electric start for easy start
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.
The hollow, high-strenght 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.
Mounted inside front rotors, the DS 450’s exclusive inverted dual-piston calipers allow for a unique knuckle / spindle / A-arm design. Computer-designed, wave-type front-and-rear rotors offer exceptional cooling and enhance all-around Precision-engineered handling.
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.
Features Chromoly hollow rear axle, extended-reach aluminum wheel hubs, aluminum sprocket, cast-aluminum swingarm. For the lowest possible unsprung weight and the most mass centralization.
Wide foot pegs with kick ups and integrated heel guards offer riders superb footing and protection.
Race-inspired radiator grill (MC)

Low seat height provides a lower center of gravity and race-ready positioning for aggressive riding.
Straight from the factory, the DS 450 X mx is prepped with a ride height of seven inches (178 mm). This height, along with the ATV being “dialed in” for a 175-pound rider (with gear), gives the DS 450 X mx a lower center of gravity and allows you to rail through the corners with confidence.

Many of top motocross pros are choosing to race with a rear width that is slightly narrower than the front-end width. This is possible with the DS 450 X mx Chromoly 4140 adjustable-width hollow axle. Adjustment from 46 (1,168 mm) to 50 inches (1,270 mm) is possible with 0.5-inch (13 mm) spacers.
+ 2-inch double A-arms with adjustable caster and camber give a 50-inch front stance
High-Industry-leading performance ITP QuadCross MX Pro tires give maximized traction on track surfaces, especially for blue-grooved. The rear tires are 18-inch motocross-ready tires complete with 8-inch (203 mm) black, aluminum ITP T-9 beadlock wheels with an inner reinforcement ring.
A +1-inch (25 mm) extra-strength steering stem with anti-vibe mounts comes standard on the DS 450 X xc and the DS 450 X mx. This gives the racer a better feel for the ATV while in an attacking stance out on the course. There is no need to buy an aftermarket stem to be competitive. Mounted to the steering stem is an aluminum 6061-T6 taper-profile handlebar with square racing pad.
Aluminum front bumper, number plate ready
FOX PODIUM X Remote rear shock with dual speed compression, rebound and preload adjustments and 11.1 inch (282 mm) of travel
FOX FLOAT X EVOL front shocks with dual-speed compression and infinitely adjustable air spring and 10.7 inch (272 mm) of travel
Straight from the factory, the DS 450 X mx comes complete with lightweight aluminum nerf bars with netted heel guards. If one desires, the nerf bars, side extensions and heel guards can be removed with ease.
With the DS 450 X mx, we have set new standards for the industry and added features to inspire any motocross rider. Featuring the first no-weld, all-aluminum frame, hollow rear axle, inverted brake calipers and the all new Fox Float X Evol shocks. It’s an ATV ready to race with less unsprung weight, more mass centralization and a better power-to-weight ratio. We invite you to ride it and tell us how we did. It’s OK, it’s understandable if you’re late getting back.
