Check out the "EXOTIC" group. The VOR is reported to be very reliable and the Enduro model is ideally suited for the eastern riding. Meaning no need for aftermarket goodies!
Actually, the latest crop of 450 class bikes from both Yamaha and Honda are now more "exotic" than a lot of the KTM, VOR and Husaberg type. And, have become just as fragile, if not more so. Face it, you can't build a four stroke this size and keep it light without designing things on the edge.
The real question is, does the Yamaha/Honda have the handling qualities needed in your part of the country and your riding style? Or, after converting it to your style, is it still cheaper than a VOR (or whatever) that is usable as it comes.
