You really need to consider your riding style and terrain, when considering these two bikes. They are very different beasts. With the WR being more of a beast and the DRZ a more user friendly trail bike. If you ride aggressive or like to frequent a motocross track the WR is for you. If you want to sit down and putt along the DRZ is what you want. The WR needs to be ridden aggressively!
I not saying he DRZ is not a very capable bike, it is. IMO the DRZ is between the XR and WR.

I bought the WR for trail riding. I have only ridden it on snow covered trails. Some single track, some double track. The more bumps seems like the faster you can go.
I find it to be quite agile as well. Many will disagree. All I have ever ridden are trails. Put me on an MX track and I'm sure to get smoked. Bottom line is what ever you get will become home to you. Both are nice bike's, but the wr rips and has stronger pull. I love mine!
