450 xc-w or 450wr

Recommended Posts

Looking at moving up from my xr400...really like how you can lug this bike, but really like the power of the newer 4 strokes.

I have spent quite a bit of time on my buddies 2008 450wr; and did ride a 2006 450 exc (believe was an exc and know it was a 450) but only very brief. From the brief time I spent on the ktm, this seems to have a little more smoother/easier to manage power/throttle.

Seems like when you twist the throttle the yamaha's front end easier, thus if need the power when going up a hill may tend to wheelie easier...this make sense / sound right?

Which one would you go with and why?

I mostly do just trail/mountain riding.
