KTM: oil clutch, 6 gears, simpler engine design, computer speedo, no rear linkage (less greasing), no frame oil, more oil filters
WR, japaneze precision, 2 cams, 5 valves, greater RPM's, less vibration, cooling water reservoair, the first 4stroke that rocked the world and is still doing so
I went blue because in my country WR's are rare, and I like being in minority with quality

6 gears is a very nice thing. you can have super low first for tight bush and still have good speed in top gear on a road. and 510cc is more the 449cc . i personally dont like there no linkage system.

Hey guys, (and gals ) need a new ride, tired of upkeep on my 8 year old 501 berg. My personal choice options are the wr450 or a ktm 525exc. I've heard nothing but good things about the WR. Anything a guy should know or does anybody have first hand experience on both machines? Looking for the unicorn here, reliability AND power.
I tried both and went with Yellow! Slapped a big bore 450 to feel the Orange power in there and am Very happy too
Orange rattled way too much and WR was not a pleasing ride for me, I dont race but used to and I love to fly but like long rides. I also wanted something that was reliable and I could ride on more than work on. My bike has been nothing but reliable and has tons of power with the tweaks
