I'm getting a new bike and don't know what to choose. I'm hesitating between a 03 wr450 and a exc 450. Having ridden the 250F for a year, I love the light weight of the little blue one. So on the new bike, weight will be a big issue. Which one is the lightest? KTM or Yam? At this time, I'm leaning towards a KTM because the Yamaha dealers are below any standard down here in Belgium. Ktm dealers seem to be better according to my riding buddies on KTM's. Another benefit is that the KTM is quiet yet powerfull. I don't know how powerfull theWRF is with the European exhaust. The biggest advantage is that the KTM is ready to race for Official Belgian Enduro's (brakelight, horn, quiet exhaust) one concern is the reputation KTM has had in the past, I think they are more reliable now, but would like to know from^people who own one. Have there been issues with the new 450? Like Yamaha had the woodruff key issue on their new 450, how is the KTM doing? Coming from a 250f, I love the light and accurate steering, which 450 is comparable, the Yam or the KTM? Thanks for helping out!
