Hi ! Looking to buy a ktm 4 stroke enduro.
I have found a ktm exc 450 2007 ( last year of the RFS engine) with only 45 hours on it since new.
And ktm exc-r 450 2009 sixdays with 111 hours on it since new - according to seller piston was changed at 90 hours.
Both are within the same range and - they are about the same price.
" Duuh go for the 09 ofc"
This being said, i rather go for reliability before performance.
We all know that RFS engines is very reliable and only 45 hours means that it does not require work for many many hours.
09 xc4 on the other hand, better chassie, better suspension, better at turning etc. But how does the xc4 engine compare to the RFS ? Reliability wise and performance wise. Also the small oil amount in the xc4 scares me off - and I know that the 08-09 bikes had some bugs on them from factory.
What would you guys do if you were in my shoes ? // Nico from Denmark
