Recommendations for reliable road legal supermoto/enduro bike

Recommended Posts

I've read online that the suspension isn't as good on the wr as the ktm, and that those who do road miles too wish it had the 6th gear, how do you find it, as I would ride alot of road, I'm erring toward the ktm

If youre going to do alot of road miles I would stick with either an XR or a DRZ if you want a more modern looking bike. I had a WR 400 14 year ago and it was **** on the road only good for spending its time on the back wheel, off road it was fantastic best to try and ride a gew before you buy one.

Yea. I need to test ride for sure. I'm pretty set on a wr450 or exc450 though. I'll he two sets of wheels. But I won't be buying till next year...

Wonder what bike the OP will get. I think the xt or drz would be good, I want something with a little more than those two though.

Thanks for your replies everyone, sorry I forgot about this thread for a little while. After doing much research ect... I've got my heart set on a DRZ 400 SM now. Seems perfect for what I want as I will be riding 90% on the road and only a little offroad and nothing serious. The DRZ seems best suited for this and has low maintenance which is what I want.

 

Also the insurance is much cheaper for the DRZ for me as it my first proper bike and the seat is a little lower which suits me perfect being only 5.9".

 

I just need to find one now as there doesn't seem many around. I've got cash waiting if anyone has one reasonably priced and not too far from Cambridge :good:

 

Kind regards,

Joshua

Hello I'm 53 and owned several motocross bikes in my youth , my last bike was a CR500. sadly I sold her. I've been looking for a super Moto over the last few months not sure what's correct for me. I would like to tinker with it , so I'm happy with an older one. but which one ????. can anyone help me.

just bought a 1090, the smallest of the bigger bikes, the WP front  suspension isn't adjustable like the larger bikes, but in my opinion doesn't really need it, not too soft for the road but still soaks up bumps pretty well
