Duratrax DX450 RTR 1/5th Brushless EP Motorcycle


New from DuraTrax:

Sure…you can take the DX450 street racing if you want. But just look at those knobby tires. The made-for-motocross frame and suspension. The DX450 blends them with brushless power and 2.4GHz control to bring you the most versatile, durable R/C bike available. With the DX450, you can ride hard and fast wherever you feel like it. Up hills and flying over jumps or traveling on gravel and grass, dirt or pavement. You can scream down straightaways and corner with confidence, even if you’ve never driven a cycle before. A simple but effective gyroscope keeps the DX450 stable and rock-steady no matter who’s behind the handlebars. And since it comes with a Tactic 2.4GHz radio system, you can choose to go off-road riding on your own — or go for in-your face motocross racing against a pack of competitors! It’s all possible…and the DX450 is ready to deliver it all the minute you open the box!

Learning to drive the DX450 is fast and easy, even if you’ve never driven an R/C cycle before. Here’s why: When the rear wheel begins to turn, weights inside rotate around the rear axle, creating a gyroscope effect which balances and stabilizes the motorcycle. It’s what “rights” the DX450 after leaning into a turn and what keeps it upright even at low speeds. That way, you can start slow and work up to full-throttle fun as your confidence increases. It’s unique, simple, effective and fun!

The DX450 is not just assembled; it’s also decaled and painted in one of four popular colors!

The Tactic 2.4GHz radio means no waiting for a free channel, no crystals to install — and virtually interference-free control anywhere you go. The receiver arrives linked to the transmitter and the motor, ESC and servos are factory-installed.
