From a 2006 Yamaha WR250F to a 2009 KTM 250 XCF-W

After more than 5 years it’s almost time to replace My current Yamaha WR250F '06 (290 big-bore, FMF powerbomb, Reckluse Z-Start and suspension revalved for my weight / use).
I have nothing to criticize on the WR, but I would like to sell it now that is still riding fine instead of waiting for the need of a rebuild.
Also in the last two years I started to participate in the SETRA Enduros and I’ll like to find a bike that will allow me decently finish races even though my fitness/training is not ideal.
I tried a 310 and Husky 'and I' loved it but it costs almost $ 2,000 more than the KTM. Since I don’t know anybody owning a 250 XC-W and I never actually tried one I’ll be grateful if anybody around will give me some advise on this bike.

i was disappointed with my xcfw at first. i thought it had no ass as it didn't jump when i wicked the throttle like the wr does. but the more i ride it...the more i love it.
one of my riding chums got off his cr 250 2 stroke and borrowed my xcfw 250. after one ride he went out and bought an 09 xcfw 450. he said the cr was like riding a 'raped ape' in comparison.
