My neighbor has a 450r and a 450x. We ride trails in the desert and he prefers the x. He says it's more comfortable, has better low end torque for any hill climbs (plus the conv. of electric start is a plus).

Well the X is a trail bike, so...

Softer suspension, less aggressive power delivery. Wide Ratio gearbox, larger fuel tank, larger radiators (I think) with overflow tank and the E button. All things to help the trail not the track.

I love my X.

I have the 250x. Opened the airbox, hole in the spark arrestor, re-jet and 13T on the front. I'm 215Lb but at 46, I don't need to go any faster (450)...

I miss a little bit of the low end chug of my piped, jetted and geared down XR400. But my X serves me well in the woods and what little track I play on.
