Looking for a new bike to replace my 01 klx 250

I don't wanna make the same mistake and buy another bike like this. I want something with A LOT more power. I was looking into getting a new xr650 but it would cost too much to insure because it is over 600ccs.
Now i have been thinking about buying a WR 426. How is the power with this bike. Will it keep up with my mates dr350, have enough speed to overtake cars without struggling and maintain atleast 120k/ph up a hill without slowing down?

Like NH Kevin says, any listed above will do you just fine. If you want an opion on the 426, it's a hell of a bike, period. Just checking, 'cause I'm not sure form what you wrote above, but be honest with yourself on what your going to need your bike for. I would recommend the WR426 to anyone who planned on doing some scramble or even track racing, or some great trail riding, but probably not recommend it as a daily commuter. You know what I mean?
On the insurance for a XR650, how much more anually does a +600cc bike cost over one of 600cc or less?? I currently pay $185 anuallly for full coverage on my scoot, and that's at Colorado rates! I guess I would just be curious.
You'd love this bike dude. You wan'a pass cars going up hill, yup! You want to smoke a DR350, yup yup!! Good smooth power, says it all.
