WR250F vs WR450F … SUPER ENDURO SHOWDOWN

6 months ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Motology Films

A couple of months back, Motology Films’ Adam Riemann put Yamaha’s WR250F and WR450F head-to-head around an enduro loop to figure out which machine was faster. Following the success of that edit – and given the growing popularity of enduro-cross these days – he’s now taken the Yamaha 250 versus 450cc showdown to his enduro-cross track (which he affectionately calls as “Boost Town”). And in doing so, he also gets an insight into how these four-strokes compare with the two-strokes that a greater majority of enduro-cross racers choose for the job.

So, how do these two different capacities fare in the technical obstacles that litter an enduro-cross course? Check out Reimann’s insights because the results will probably surprise you…
