I have a WRR and sold my European 450, the WRR is a very good dualsport. It is made to putt around on and does it quite well as you know.
I also wanted a lighter bike and more power, the 450 sure had both, but it was tiring to putt around on.
I was much more comfortable on the WRR then the 450.
The engine was soo much smoother for long rides, it didn't try to kill you if you accidently bumped the throttle and it actually felt as light as the 450 and was physically smaller which I liked on the single track.
I was using both as dual sports and the WRR was better at it.
I kept the WRR and sold the 450.
The WRR is the Jeep compared to KTM baja truck.
If you want to dual sport around get the WRR. If you want a high performance race bike get the KTM.
