I own a DR350 MY 94 and it carries me around since 2007 in off and on road, now i would like like to change it with a more specialistic thumper and i'm thinking on KTM exc 450-525, Yamaha Wr 450, Honda 450X and Husaberg 550.
In your opinion which is the most suitable for going off-road and sometimes make some transfers on the tarmac?
Which of them requires less maintenance?
Thanks to all!
all these bikes are high performance and high maintenance. find one which feels comfortable. see if any of your mates have one or see if you can test ride at a bike shop. only you know what you want.

having seen a pile of these engines with blown bigends and receding inlet valves, i beg to differ.
Where you come from is gone. Where you thought you were going, Was never there. Where you are, Ain't no good unless you can get away from it.
