I have a WR 250 R and really like it. The WR 450 is not street legal in the USA.

thanks for that, tbh, i dont think the 450 is street legal here in the uk either, as its the F, they dont do it in the R or X versions.

the slightly off putting bit about the 250R is the black frame etc, as ive seen it in silver and prefer it, but i think the R uk version has black.

aye WR. 450 will have more bottom end torque . is a bit more of a handfull than the revvy 250. once u get used to it . would be less effort to drive [offroad] that is, Am going twinshock motX TMORROW :D:D

Don't want to confuse you any, but are you looking to purchase new, or second hand?

If you are in the 2nd hand market then take a look at the TTR's - I run a TTR600E that I use for winter commuting and green lane's. I've lost count of the people who have questioned this, but the fact that the TTR is air cooled and is no heavier than most 400's makes this a good bike for both. It'll sit at 70-80mph, and takle most off road stuff, unless you're more trial than trail...

In some states in the US I've seen street legal WR450F's. The 250R and X are sold out at many dealerships I've inquired at....great bikes!

Which states would that be.
