Looking for a big boy wheeler

Ive got a friend that asked me to look for him some 4wheelers.
For his size I dont really know. Hes wanting more of a race bike or something sporty other than 4x4 wheelers.
I got another friend that has a DS 650 and that fits a bigger guy.
My 400ex is too little. My brother is bigger than this dude and has had a trx450 and a yfz450 so idk.

The TRX450 is very comfortable for the larger rider. Plus it is the ultimate platform for upgrades, Here is mine...

I would say the 700xx is what your looking for. Sporty plenty of power irs ect. I don't know how it jumps, but it has plenty of room on it. I could go 2 up on it.
