I need to know. I'm gonna buy either the WR450 or the KTM 450.
I'm gonna buy one of them but weight is very important in my decision. Where can I find the weight? I've already checked the Yamaha web site.

I'm not so sure that just the physical weight of the machine is the most important part, but how the weight is carried. The WR has always carried its weight pretty high. Hopefully the new model is both lighter and carries it weight lower. KTM has always done a good job in these areas. Regardless, time will tell and the new Yami looks/sounds nice.

Colour is the least important part of a motorcycle. Usually, you get what you pay for. Cheap=cheap.

now now the yamaha wr/yzf's are some of the best built bikes in the industry and cost much less then katooms ...better repair history - easy to get parts - awsome perfomance + less price = better value! But if you got the money, the ktm's sure are nice...
