Attention search nazis.................I tried it and was overwhelmed with useless info. If there is a prior thread on this please feel free to re-direct me. I had a 12' KTM 450 XC-W and loved it, but sold it due to lack of riding time. I am now looking for another one. I have found a good buy on a new 500 XC-W and was hoping someone could explain the difference in how the motors feel and work. I have never ridden the 500 and was curious how it compares to the 450 and hope that someone who has ridden both could explain. Thanks!!!!!!
