The time has come to replace the old 426 but now I'm struggling to decide over a 250 or 450. Most of my mates ride 250 4 strokes and I know they handle a bit better than my bike, but how do the 06 onwards 450's handle compared to a late model 250?

The 06 and 07 450s are going to handle just as good or better than your buddies' 250s. Its a night and day difference with the 426, and the new 450s are a ton lighter.
