While the weight of the two bikes isn't that much different on paper, my WR feels much lighter than my 610 did. I think the difference is around 50-60 lbs., but it feels like 100lbs. I'm enjoying the ligher weight, although the heavier 610 was definitely better in windy conditions.
I think it's only about 20-40 lbs if I remember correctly. It's interesting that everyone says that about the WRR. It doesn't look like it, but the center of mass must be lower. I noticed the same thing compared to my DR. The difference is about 75 lbs, but it feels like 150.
