    Question WR450F vs DRZ400 in commuting and upkeep

    Was thinking about a new 07 WR450F or DRZ400, I know the WR would be better off road and power wise but how would a WR450F compare to a DRZ400 in commuting and maintenance?

    Would the higher cost of the WR be worth it?

    The WR will be more exciting, weighs less and has more power than a DRZ but requires a little more maintenance and TLC. You will need to add lights/signals and get it plated for the street.

    The DRZ weighs a bit more and has a tad less power but should prove to be a more bulletproof commuter and comes stock with lights/signals and is ready for the street.

    No problems getting a license plate for the WR in Tennessee?
