I've was planning to buy a WR450F and was getting prices when I got a chance to buy a new 2003 DRZ400E for $6000, which is an excellent price for my area (Canadian dollars). The WR450 is selling for $7300, which is also a pretty good price for here. I'm looking for a bike that has plenty of power and can be ridden aggressively but not raced. I ride rocky trails, mostly 2nd or 3rd gear, with occasional short 4th or 5th gear roads. I no beginner but I'm no pro either. I like the WR better, but is it worth the extra dollars.
