2005 Yamaha WR450 brand new. Just assembled from crate for $3900 plus tax. Sound like a deal? I'm currently riding an XR650R and hope I won't be disappointed in the power once it's uncorked.
I'm pretty sure I'm buying the bike but I'm having a bit of pre-seller's remorse with the Honda.
Basically, I'm just looking for some reassurance!!

Thanks.

This is the only problem you have

Brand new or not it is still a 05 that once you ride it it is worth what you are paying due to age BUT you are getting a brand new bike for the price of a used one so I say go for it

Its a good deal, but only because its brand new. This is somewhere in the range of what you'd pay for a used one ($3500). I know for a fact that this is a great bike and you will like it.

If you are used to a 650, then you will appreciate the lighter handling and very good power. It won't compare to your 650, but you'll have all of the power you need. Aside from the free mods, all this bike needs are jets and a pipe.


If you are already in the market for a bike, then this is as good a deal as you will find.

Great bike. It will be much better for tails than the XR and probably have more snap.

Hi new450. I just picked up a 2005 WR450 today in MN for $3900 and am wondering if that was the bike you were looking at. Did you decide not to get the bike?
