250T, 350F or 450F. Very torn!

So i just sold my 2011 Crf250r. (Just a weekend rider)

 

Mainly because i wanted a 2 stroke instead, to try and avoid costly rebuilds and i did find the the 250f a little boring. 

 

I spent all day today on a 2002 rm250 and now i'm torn even more on what i want to buy next. 

 

It was incredibly fun to casually ride around on and hit band, but as soon as i met up with my mates and started riding the tighter rut tracks and whoops i started hating it. 

I got tired fast, the vibrations gave me hand cramp and i missed the low down torque in the tight turns.

I don't have the skill to keep these bikes in the power around the tracks that we ride.

 

I'm now leaning towards a KTM 350 or a 450 (any model) but I haven't ridden one so i'm not sure what i'm in for...

Also a little worried now looking at a USED 4 stroke compared to a 2 stroke. 

Any help appreciated!

Thanks!

With any used 4 T you need to consider the rebuild history , otherwise you may need to spend more on motor work , if required .

I believe the 350 is the perfect play bike.

More power than the 250 & not as brutal as a 450

Try and get a demo on each of them and take it from there. Riding them in your preferred terrain will make the decision easy
