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 the bikes you specify are race bikes and therefore not low maintenance. In my experience the old KTM RFS bikes are pretty reliable FOR A RACE BIKE
If you want a low maintenance off-road bike go for a Honda XR4, Suzuki DRZ400, Suzuki DR650 or similar.
