My WR would tear up any of the XR or DR650's I have ridden never mind the 400's (I also have an XR400R, I love it but the WR would tear it up as well) The only bike that I have ridden that will take on the WR is the CRF450.
I stick to the top 4 brands (for parts availability) so I have no idea what a KTM or Husaberg or any other bike will do compaired to the 13,500 RPM 5 Titanium valved Yamaha WR Super Thumper. This bike thinks its a two stroke and is very convincing...
I got mine just because it was a street legal dirt bike. I thought the factory 200cc dual sports were too small for the street and the 650cc too big for off road. I had no idea just how technologically advanced this super thumping Yamaha was. I got it all corked up and was truly amazed at how it comes to life when you do all the free mods.
I don't understand why Yamaha doesn't offer a street legal electric start WR450 or 250 for that matter. Suzuki at least does the DRZ in a street trim. I would be one of the first in line for a Yamaha WR that was factory street legal, as long as it was able to be un-corked.....
