four speed???

Hey iv been looking at a 07 ktm 450sxf, but its got a four speed in it. Are the four speeds any good offroad and on the trails??? Would it have enough umph to climb or is it geard too wild for off road???

It really depends on the type of riding you do but I personally would avoid a 4 speed bike for offroad. If you ride a lot of technical trails they can be geared down to work but you sacrifice top speed. If you ride faster stuff the gearing can be left stock but then you have to really work the clutch in the technical stuff. An auto clutch could help this but then you might have a heat issue. More gears just gives you much more flexibility in mixed terrain.
