Good Qurestion. I got rid of my CRF 450X (poor handling and heavy) and unloaded my RM 250 and went with the 450 EXC. First ride today, in tight-hilly-rutted out mud conditions. The bike blew me away. Much smoother power than my 05 CRF 450, or YXF 426. I rode the KTM 300 2 stroke last week at same location, and I much prefer the 450 exc. Call me if you have any questions. Bruce (330) 603-8787.
bgrishkevich replied to kincade's topic in 250-530 EXC/MXC/SXC/XC-W/XCR-W (4-Strokes)I went to the Yamaha/KTM dealer on wed 8/24 to buy the WR 450 (2005) and walked out with the KTM EXC 450 and will take it to the trails tomorrow. I also own a YZF4276 and love the bike......but the WR450 will never run like the YZF.. I recommend the KTM for the low end grunt and handling.. Bruce
