Clark - On my bathroom scale my 00 DRZ400S was 50 lbs heavier than my 01WR250F (similarly prepped, ready to ride - no gas.) The power was the same and the WR had twice the throttle response
and way better suspension.
If you don't want to spend much time on the road - then the WR250F will be a nice upgrade. If you want to spend much more time on the road then trail to trail, the 450 is going to be the way to go. ...or if you want big power - the 450 all the way.
