This is what I wanted to know
Thanks for the write up... My dad had a WRr, and a CRF230L (he's 61 years old) and sold me the WR (which I love) He really wanted something in between the two. FI with good hwy and better off road, but lower seat and broader power characteristics in the motor.
I had a feeling that weight wise, the bikes would feel similar... For 2k less it sounds like honda has a winner... In a new purchase comparison. The WRr does feel tough, I've put it down several times, gone over large jumps etc, it just takes it. ( please note, I am not as aggressive at the KTM level )
