It appears to be electric start and the engine has been made much slimmer.

Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

Iím just glad to see them trying to catch KTM, and not just rolling over and giving up.

kaw wont give up , it funny when you read any shoot out how different mags have different winners , i saw one mag have the 18 yz450 win , i say you better off riding the bikes your self there not much different and it what you like and use to , e start great to have all your behind the others , great for when you crash and pick it up tired and go again , as for juice clutch i never have trouble with cable . we have the 18 kx450 with spring conversion showa fork and is std else where , had the 16 model as well did 100 race hrs trouble free apart from chain guides which is to soft of material and is fixed by a tm design, i hope all they do is fix the guides , spring forks ,e start nice , any thing else is a bonus and not get any heavier. light weight good but i did read where some ktm frames had failure. there not a real lot you can do more to these bikes for the price they are.
