Top speed on a 400EX is about 68 mph, the 450R is about 74 mph. But the 450R also gets to top speed a heck of a lot quicker.

I've had my 660 up to 68 on the main road(blacktop). At least that's what the display said. I don't know how accurate they are. One of my buddies has a 700 and he said he had his up to 71 downhill.

Not a lot of differance between the 700 and 660 except for FI.

I believe the 700 is supposed to have about 3 more horsepower. The 700 feels a lot smoother than the 660.

I have rode a lot of 4 wheelers and the 700 Grizz has the most comfortable ride i have found.

Yeah, they are comfortable. The 660 is too, except the 700 is smoother. But what I meant about smoother is vibration. The fuel injection has a little less vibration.

thanks but how is the 450 on the trails is it contrulable or wicked
It is very controlable power. Have you ever rode a 2 stroke? The 450 because it is a fast revving race bike requires some clutch work for woods/trail riding. You really have to let the clutch slip at times.

I have owned a Rhino 660 and a Rhino 700(same motor as the Grizzly) and the 700 is a much smoother motor but the 660 was easier to get higher top speed. Stock speed on a Rhino is 42mph. With a CDI, intake and exhaust I got the 660 to 55mph and the 700 increased to 51mph.
