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.
Push-button electric start for easy start
The spindle acts as a lever on the steering ball joints. The longer the lever, the more the kickback is transmitted to the steering when the wheel hits an obstacle. The DS 450 short spindle lever reduces negative steering feedback, providing a more confidence-inspiring ride.
Inverted twin-piston front brake calipers offer impressive stopping power because of the larger brake discs (182 mm). By putting the caliper "inside" a peripheral brake disc, the diameter can be increased as close as possible to the inside of the wheel. This set-up allows for larger brake discs and improved stopping power and feel. Plus, the peripheral disc brake leaves room inside to push the lower A-arm ball-joint deep inside the wheel.
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.
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.
The DS 450 X xc features 20-in. (508 mm) rear ITP Holeshot GNCC tires mounted on 9-in. (229 mm) black, aluminum ITP T-9 beadlock wheels. The taller lugs of the Holeshot GNCC provide superior traction in demanding race conditions.
Wide foot pegs with kick ups and integrated heel guards offer riders superb footing and protection.

The front end of the DS 450 X xc comes with a shim-style caster adjustment. Each shim represents one-degree of adjustment with 3 degrees to 10 degrees of caster adjustment. This allows the racer to completely "dial in" the DS 450 X xc for his or her preference.
The DS 450 X xc model’s 7.5-inch (101 mm) ride height — assuming a 175-pound rider with gear — reduces the center of gravity for improved cornering capabilities.
Graphics and seat cover exclusive to the X package.
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.

Mounted to the steering stem is an aluminum 6061-T6 taper-profile handlebar with square racing pad.
