I have owned this bike from new. It is a Black ( 1st in UK) CCM 404 DS with both trail and SMoto wheels. I have raced this in clubman Smoto and also Enduro. It is a better Trail/Enduro bike than Smoto as it seems to prefer this type of use ( my opinion) . As a Supermoto its fine , but lacks the longer legs for road use due to engine capacity. Mine was collected from the factory as a 450cc and I was told I was the 1st for this too. ( I worked for a dealer and got acccess to parts ealry,... (read more)

had a few problems at first but that was because the last ownder had messed about with the wiring, the CCM guys in the bolton UK are very useful, and theres a great ccmrider.co.uk website that have plenty of tips for CCMs.

Competition 450's like KTM etc are fine but need regular fuel stops and lots of servicing. Unless you're looking to compete as an expert the CCM is a much better deal and easier-to-live-with kind of in... (read more)

I use the CCM 404 DualSport is a 2nd bike so it's effectively a fun bike, it's only done 2,500 miles (a Ducati M1000 Monster does the major mileage and longer journeys).
I've had the CCM 2 years now and it's never had a hint of a problem. It's a perfect bike for throwing around tight twisty local roads for shortish periods of time.
The handling is awesome and also quite forgiving. Great feedback from suspension and frame.
It's also great in town with a responsive and punchy 398cc... (read more)
