The 610 does not have snappy power like the WR but has tons of torque and is easy to ride at any pace. It will corner but you must work much harder at it than on the Yamaha the biggest problem back then was PARTS availability. I crashed the bike punched a hole through the left clutch cover and damaged the inner cluth hub. I ordered new parts and it took EIGHT months to get the inner cluth hub. Luckily I did a home repair on my hub and it held together until the new parts finally arrived. I had no real troubles not crash related but the parts thing was disturbing. I feel the 610 is a better dual sport ride for the street than the WR it just cruses along and has great passing power.

WR has more snap, Husky was overall faster, pulled like tractor from the drop of the clutch and you were goin way to fast when ya wanted to stop.....Is NOT a woods bike, and since I moved from an open area to a new area where I mostly ride woods it was not compatable..hence the WR and I really like it...
