Looking for comparisons of the engines of these 2 bikes?

I am considering a couple different examples of each for dual sport riding.....pretty much 50/50.
I am familiar with the chassis differences.

I would like a focused discussion on the motors like
HP and torque comparo's
Which one is more powerful?
Is there a significant difference between them?
reliability etc.

This would be on uncorked properly tuned/jetted versions of each by the way.

I know its an older post but the search engine is down and I found it surfing. Anyway since nobody answered your question I'll give it my 2 cents worth...

I own a DR 650 and an XR650R. The DR is dual sported and the XR is dirt only. No comparison, the XR will eat the DR for a late night snack.

Hope this helps...
