TE or KTM 450 or 530? 3

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of ether buying the Exc 450 or the TE 450 . I would really like to know what think? I also may consider the exc 530 or the Te 510. I own a WR 250 R great bike love it run very good. Gearing is high. Not that great on rocks. It's more of a 40/60 % bike meaning 40 % dirt 60 % road.. I ride 85/15 to 90/10 and there's a lot or rock here in Pa. Don't want to always be working on my new bike either. I weight 200 LB and 5' 9" height has beeb a problem. I do want something I can ride on the road sometimes. I don't do a lot of jumping, but I would like to start running some Endoro races. Could you please help.

Please help??[/

Thank you for your feed back!!! Maybe you can also clear up something for me?

I have always heard that it was the other way around KTM for endoro's TE for dual sport. I am not racing, however I do plan to try a few more endoro's. I ran in one last year but did not finish on my WR 250 R dual sport biggest reason was the bike. What do you mean by wide range gearing and closer gear range??? Please explain?? The are a lot of rocks around here .How does the TE handle them better than the KTM? I heard the KTM was the rock bike??? Last can you bog the engine when in tight places like I heard you can do with the KTM? I found a left over new 09 TE 450 for $6200 which I think is a steal compared to the $9200 2010 KTM exc 450.

Once again Thank you so much for you time in replying to my question!!!!!
