Help what bike do I go for

Recommended Posts

I can't decide what bike to go for, I'm looking at all of the following but just can't decide, I want it for both off road, occasional road riding and enduro events.

1 ktm exc 400/450

2 Honda xr 400

3 Suzuki dr-z 400

4 Kawasaki klx 300 (if I can did one)

Can anyone give good points and bad points on any over these bike and your opinions too.

Thanks

Hi Dan,

For £2000 you can get a great bike, what's your biking history? How tall are you? what do you weigh?

I'd get the KTM, all the other's are not great for Enduro events we have over here. They are pretty much better in everyway

This.  The other three are decent bikes, but would be terrible for enduro/hare scrambles.

Either the KTM or the XR4

The KTM 400 and 450 are different beasts (the 400 being much more mellow than the 450), and both being more race worthy than the XR.

The XR is super reliable, comfortable, but lowerer on power, and the suspesion is kinda soft (Race Tech valves and heavier springs can rectify that).

The DRZ (dual sport model) is too heavy for real off-roading, the E model is pretty good.

Wouldn't touch the KLX
