WR 250 or 450?
Posted November 10, 2003 - 10:25 AM
I am looking for a new bike to replace my Suzuki DRZ400S but I am really torn between the 250 or 450 WR 2004. I would love to hear your options! I am 6' 160lbs, all arms and legs. I mostly ride tight signal track and fast fire roads with the odd gravel road to connect the trails together here in Southern Ontario. Since I bought the DRZ I have been making more and more dirt worthy. I do need a bike that can do 60MPH on the back roads with out blowing up after 20 minutes.
From what I can tell there is very little weight difference between the 250 and the 450 so I wonder if the 450 would be a better choice? But is sounds like a 250 would perform much better in the tight stuff.

My opinion is that you will suffer a lot on a fire road if you ever ride with somebody riding a XR650R. I think the 450 is a good choice for you. Not bad at all in tight stuff with proper gearing...

The WR 450 just took top honors in the 6 day ISDT. I have had both,both are great bikes,just my opinion.
