>Some of the most fabulous tech in the world comes out of China, but until
recently we didn’t have much evidence
of that in the motorcycle world. Chinese
bikes have a reputation for being heavy,
having meek performance and offering
crude control feel. But, that is changing. A
year ago when we tested SSR Motorsports’
SR150 and SR189, we checked out the early
SSR SR450S. As much as it looked like a
serious effort, it still had a few clunky parts.
Fast-forward a year and the difference is
remarkable. This SR450S looks like a finely
engineered dirt bike.
Made in Asia and priced right!
