There was only a $400 price difference between the bikes for me and I decided to get the 450 because I wanted the power and did not want buyer's remorse that I should have gone for the bigger bike. Both bikes will rip a lot more than your current bike.
At first I found the 450 to be a monster. Top heavy too. I then got the bike lowered and revalved. Put a YZ tank and seat on it and I am perfectly happy with how the bike handles. The bike turns well in the tight stuff and has so much power it can climb anything.
My guess is that most guys in this site will recommend the 450.
I hate to say this but if money was no object and you had a dealer close to you, KTM also makes nice 300 and 400 cc bikes that might be more in between the two Yamahas. For me, I am true blue and have no regrets that I got a great bike.
