Also don't know much about the Husky's either.
I am very slightly leaning toward CRFX just because I hear it is more power than the other two I am looking at. Hard to go away from the WR - it has been such a great bike, but I have a long history with honda as well.

The KTM 450 xcr-w is based on the exc-r dual sport and its solid platform but a bit spendy. The 450 xcf is based off of the 450 sx motor and its a beast. The only thing I don't like about the xcf (besides the fact that its orange) is it lacks a back up kickstarter. The Husky TXC 450 is pure sex on two wheels...its basically an MX motor matched up to a close ratio 6 speed enduro trans. Search the husky forum and you'll see those motors are solid. Both bikes will need less fiddling to perform at peak than the japanese bikes and if you can find a leftover '08 they're likely to be a good bargain too.
