Ken Roczen: If Kenny didn't sell Honda hundred of brand new 2017 CRF450R's on Saturday night, I will be shocked! We all knew that Kenny would be fast but 13 seconds (16 seconds on the last lap) ahead of Ryan Dungey fast? I think not! Kenny looked more comfortable on the red bike than I have ever seen him. The confidence he is oozing out is noticeable and you can see this in his riding. Kenny usually is known to force and push down on the front end hard when landing off of jumps, but when you watch the tape of him riding the Suzuki last season compared to this year's Honda, he looks much more relaxed and fluid aboard the CRF450R. This doesn't bode well for the other riders. Yes, it's only round one, but this is a different Kenny and he looks like he wants this championship more than ever. Oh and so does Honda, especially with all the money they are paying him. Fun Fact: Did you know that Team Honda doesn't run fuel tank bolts to their frames. The fuel tank is fastened with a rubber tank strap. This apparently helps with chassis feel when the track gets rough or choppy.
